I have always strived to provide each of them with an impeccable experience and value the countless long-term relationships that have been built over the last 12 years.” Married for several years to his wife, Melisa and a proud Dad to two wonderful boys, ages 7 and 15, he enjoys spending time with his family and teaching his sons to golf.
