I grew up in a family orientated town outside of New York City. My parents were born in Italy and came to the United States to start their own family. I am the youngest of three siblings. My childhood was very loving and filled with many family traditions. My parents are both from very big families. I have 35 first cousins! We grew up all being best friends and spent Sundays at our grandparents' house playing outside and having a big Sunday dinner filled with lots of amazing home-cooked Italian food. After graduating high school, I attended University and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in English and Sociology. I always wanted to be a lawyer for as long as I could remember. I fulfilled that dream when I graduated from Law School and landed my dream job.
I grew up in the suburbs in a traditional Italian household, the youngest of four siblings. My parents and two of my siblings were born in Italy. As a child I love school, art, music, sports, and martial arts. Some of my hobbies now include drawing, writing, playing the guitar and running. I love the outdoors and exploring new places and learning about the history of those places. As much as I love to stay active, I value spending time with my wife, son and family more than anything. I am an avid reader and have a large library of books that I cannot wait to pass down to my children. I attended New York University earning a Bachelor degrees in both Political Science and History. I then attended Law School and fulfilled my dream of becoming an attorney.
We live in a family orientated neighborhood, with many parks, beaches, farms, zoos and amusement parks all within driving or walking distance. We are also a short car ride away from New York City; which gives us the balance of city and suburban life. Our home is a two-story house with 4 bedrooms. Our two favorite places in the house are our kitchen and our family room. We love to cook and bake and the kitchen is where everyone gathers for home-cooked meals. The family room is where we play with Noah and snuggle on the couch to watch movies by the fireplace.
Indie is our three year old Yorkie Pomeranian mix puppy. We adopted Indie when she was a few months old and she has been a huge part of our lives ever since. She is a ball of energy and loves people. She loves to snuggle and go for walks to the park. Indie is very protective over Noah. We love watching them play together and love how affectionate she is with him.
We are both very close to our families. They live within driving distance and we see them on a weekly basis. we have big family dinners on the weekend and they are filled with delicious home cooked meals and desserts. We also have big extended families. Antoinette has 35 first cousins! Most of those cousins have small children and all the children get together on weekends, birthdays, or holidays.
As a family, we have a lot of traditions that we look forward to every season. Some of them include meeting the Easter bunny and an Easter egg hunt, carving pumpkins on Halloween, dressing up in costumes for Halloween, baking gingerbread cookies on Christmas Eve and matching family onesies on Christmas day.
In our free time we like to go on road trips, watch movies, exercise, have karaoke nights with our nephews and niece, attend broadway shows, concerts, visit museums and attend Sunday church services. Tommy enjoys to sing and play guitar and Antoinette enjoys playing the piano and flute. Tommy recently earned his black belt in kung fu and ran the New York City marathon. Antoinette enjoys cycling, kickboxing and practicing yoga. We also like to take painting classes, try new restaurants and traveling to new destinations when possible.
