I have lived in New York City for most of my life. I was born in the South Bronx and moved to Forest Hills, Queens when I was eight years old.
I’m a fourth degree black belt in karate with extensive training in the martial arts. I have had a number of different careers and have worked in New York City government and in corporate human resources for several major companies. After graduating from law school a little later in life, I started a solo law practice specializing in employee rights while working part-time as an administrative law judge. I'm retired now.
As a licensed New York City tour guide, I regularly lead tours of New York City for a select group of people. Like the twelve-year old hero in You Gotta Have Heart, Alan Michaels, I like to think I know a lot about Central Park and New York City.
I’m an avid reader and love watching movies in my home theater –which takes up a lot of space in my small apartment. You Gotta Have Heart is my first novel.
