I’m married to my wife, Annie, and have a beautiful daughter, Sofia. I currently live in Gloucester, but grew up in Newton before moving to the North End.
I love walking out to the one of the many coves in Cape Ann during inclement weather to watch the power of the ocean. My favorite restaurant is Feather and Wedge in Rockport.
Best two spots I’ve visited would be Cape Verde and Cuba. Both countries are naturally beautiful, warm culture, with amazing people.
My favorite piece of architecture would be Fundação de Serralves by Álvaro Siza. The lines created by the sun, both inside and outside of the building offer a truly unique experience every time one visits the museum.
My random fact is that I tried out for the US Men’s Luge team when I was in 4th grade. My favorite sports team is the F.C. Porto.
