I am an educator, husband and father living on Long Island my entire life. Having worked with teenagers my entire professional career, I offer a unique perspective into the mitigating factors that drive adolescent behaviors, particularly those which can lead to destructive decisions. I have devoted my life and my career to advocating for and empowering youth to help them live their best life.
