When I say I grew up at the Jersey Shore, that doesn’t mean I visited every weekend during the summer. I lived there. I lived in Brick until my mid-20s, minutes from the beaches and boardwalks of Pt. Pleasant, Manasquan, Seaside Heights and Belmar. My parents still live in the house they bought when I was three years old.
When I see and hear about what’s going on where I grew up – people who still can’t return home because their neighborhoods have been turned upside down – it’s still kind of hard to fathom.

I’m a copywriter, marketing consultant, lifelong New Jersey resident, husband to a beautiful wife and father to two beautiful girls. I love playing with my daughters, a day at the boardwalk, sarcasm, craft beer and grilling. I despise beating around the bush, synchronized swimming, Toddlers & Tiaras and onions. Most people don’t know I used to be a radio DJ and once wrote, produced and voiced a commercial for the TV show 24. Two places I want to visit before I die are Ireland and Norway, the homes of my ancestors. One place I never want to revisit is my first apartment because my creepy landlord, Monty, freaked me out. That just about covers it.
