I'm a 27 year old from New York. I graduated from RIT with a major in Information Technology and currently live in Syracuse.

I eat, sleep and breathe hockey, especially between October and June. I've usually got something to say every entry about RIT's teams, the Sabres and/or the Canucks.


Most anything. Jason Mraz is my favorite singer, "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas is my favorite song. You'll most often catch me listening to 80's, 90's, classic rock, musicals, soundtrack music or anything current I can dance to.
