I was raised in South Florida with my brother, born to two recently-transplanted Italian-American Brooklynites in 1980. In 2002, I graduated University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts, and in 2003 moved to Los Angeles in hot pursuit of a creative spark.  I worked my way up the ladder over the course of several years, and found my niche designing and engineering challenges for competition shows.  In 2012 I married the love of my life and best friend.

I've had the opportunity to create many things, but in 2014 my daughter Caroline was born--and she is my crowning achievement.
