What is your hobby?

Aside from the obvious answer of spending time with friends and family, I love music. I also love cars, cooking, and fine dining. As of the past few years I’ve taken an interest in boating and being on the water. Long Island is one of the most beautiful places to explore, especially on the South Shore. There’s nothing better than taking friends and family out on the water to enjoy a sunset.

How did you get started with these hobbies?

Music has just always been a big part of my life. I love how different songs start to represent different times in my life, bringing back memories and emotions. It’s nice to shut the mind off sometimes and slip into a good song, enjoy a quiet moment while you are listening and escape the stresses of every-day life. When it comes to spending time with friends and family, I have to wonder what I’m working so hard for if I don’t make them a priority.

What inspired you?

Friends and family are a priority in my life and always will be. They inspire me to help others and stay true to those who are there for you and matter the most in life. I’m the type of guy who believes if you take good care of the people around you, they will take good care of you. Much of my inspiration comes from the people around me and

I enjoy helping businesses get off the ground and find their place in their chosen industry. I advise people to follow their passions, whether in personal life or when it comes time for professionals to decide which industry will be their niche. You can have skills, but if you are not passionate about what you are doing, success is just not as attainable as if it’s in a field you are passionate about.
