We met on Match.com in 2007. After emailing, texting and some phone calls, we went on our first date. The date was going so well, we went to Starbucks after dinner where Deb got hot chocolate since she doesn’t like coffee and we have been together ever since.
We enjoy Mets games, traveling, going to the beach, going to movies, spending time with friends and family, and, most recently, we have gotten into hiking and playing some online games with friends. We also love going to concerts to see our favorite bands (from the 90s mostly). We like to get to the city when we can to catch a Broadway show, walk the high line or Central Park and eat some yummy food.
We got married in 2013 in Las Vegas! Both of our parents love Vegas, so it wasn't hard to convince them to go. We had a beautiful ceremony and had an amazing dinner with about 30 friends and family at a restaurant in Ceasar’s Palace. It was an amazing day and experience.
We lived in an apartment in Western Nassau county so Deb could be close to the train station to get to her job in the city at the time. When she got a job on Long Island, we got a home further east to have some more space and to be closer to our families. We now live in Suffolk County, about 15 minutes from a beach and around 20-40 minutes from our parents.
We have a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in a quiet neighborhood. The house has a fully finished basement and beautiful sunroom, or favorite room in the house.
