Edward is a caring, thoughtful, and very giving person. All of these characteristics have made him an amazing uncle and future father. He is fun and goofy, enjoys playtime with our nieces and nephews or teaching them to bake dozens of holiday cookies. His laid-back yet silly personality makes others feel welcome. Most of all, Ed is dedicated to family, wanting to make sure every moment is cherished: he is our holiday host! 


Ed works in property management for a Homeowners Associate. His job allows him a flexible work schedule – Ed is a night owl, which will be perfect for late night feeding or when the child is scared of the monster under the bed. 


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