I'm originally from Upstate New York. I was born in Oneida Hospital, but I've lived in 14 different towns in New York. My parents now live in Glennville, NY. After NY, I moved to Virginia where I initially lived in Blacksburg before moving to the small town of Pembroke on the New River in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I came to the Maine unit on March 28, 2011. I enjoy playing and fishing with my daughter.
