Ed and our friends daughter
Ed when he was a child
I was born on Long Island, New York the eldest of two children. Growing up, I emulated my dad and mom. My father taught me how to use tools and always allowed me to help him fix things around the house. Through him, I became confident and capable and learned how to tackle projects competently and safely. His guidance allowed me to become the property manager for a large community. My mother taught me everything she knew in the kitchen. Through her, my love for cooking was born. She was my inspiration to go to the French Culinary Institute and train to be a chef. Both of my parents made me who I am today, a family-oriented guy who loves spending time building things, cooking, and gardening. I can't wait for the day that I can guide and instill these values in my child.
