  • Married
  • My wife and I have been together over 20 years. We have two children, Addy (11) and Tatum (9) and three dogs. I run an alternative program in Massachusetts at a high school that provides kids with an alternative to the regular mainstream education. My wife is an athletic director at Johnson and Wales University. We currently reside in West Greenwich, Rhode Island, but are both transplants. I grew up in Milford, Connecticut and she grew up in Blythewood, South Carolina.
