T

I'm a born and raised in New Yorker.
I'm a huge Mets & Rangers fan.
I have an obsession with the film Groundhog Day. In 2006 I traveled to Punxsutawney for the Groundhog festival. I met Punxsutawney Phil and interviewed the town's mayor.
I also love hot wings, bowling, my fiancée, and a good comedy show.
