About Me


Be happy, centered, enjoy life and people, be funny


I am married with 3 boys. My wife and I own the Hungry Moose Market and Deli, a grocery store/deli in Big Sky, a ski town in Montana which we opened in 1994. When I have time I write poetry. I have my own blog: My wife and I have worked very hard at establishing our business and have begun in the last few years to take time off to travel alone, together or with our children...

I grew up on Long Island, went to college in New York City, where I lived for about ten years before moving to Los Angeles where I lived for about 5 years. I moved to Big Sky, Montana, a ski resort town with my wife in 1993.

I love to fly fish and hike and be with friends. I love to travel, but it's been awhile since I've hit the road for a long stretch.


Life is too short to be stressed. Just Breathe...
