Where did you grow up? I spent the first 15 years of my life in Vernon, Ct. and spent my high school years in Philadelphia, Pa.
Tell us about your family. My beautiful wife is a Nurse and Stroke Educator at Kalispell Regional. I have 2 amazing children. Blake is 2 and loves to spend his free time outside skiing, biking on the strider and swimming in the beautiful Montana Lakes. My wife just recently gave birth to our 2 month old baby girl. Lillian has been an incredibly happy baby who has brought a great deal of joy to our lives. My parents are retired now and spend lots of their free time traveling but claim their home base is in Pennsylvania. My brother lives in Massachusetts with his wife, daughter and son. My older sister lives in Ct. with her husband and three children. My youngest sister lives in Philadelphia, Pa. and is engaged to be married in 2014.
