Born in 1961. Raised in Ebbets Field Projects. First memory is siting on my Dad's knees at the Polo Grounds watching the Mets which became our beloved team. Loving the Brooklyn Dodgers and Gil Hodges, I was a born Yankee Hater. I will always respect certain players that have come up through an organization but hate the team. I have spent my working life attempting to better youth lives that have had it far from easy. I have been employed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services for 25 years. I am married t a wonderful woman, Patti, have two great "kids, Brian, 22, and Kristin, 19, both in college. My Dad also blessed with me with the love of all sports except soccer. He even tried that. So I am a huge football Giants fan and a Jet sympathizer. Hey they did play at Shea. I am active in sports playing volleyball, racquetball, softball, and basketball. I am pursuing my masters in Liberal Studies with a concentration on victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Children and Combat veterans.
Currently I am a Policy Analyst which is my second stint without direct contact for youth. Previously I served as the Interim Supervisor for the Bureau of Counseling Services. My facility life included working as a direct care staff up to Facility Director. My wife is a Senior Admissions Counselor at Excelsior College. I am a cancer survivor. Surviving with the love of my wife and my children and all the children that sent me cards and letters to "get better"
I come from a family that fell apart, played semi-professional baseball for a short period of time, and have lived on my own since I was 15 years old. Life is as good as you make it. It's a hell of a ride and way too short.
Thomas, would you have any interest in writing for a Giants blog I have? We need good writers and people that will take it seriously. Let me know please. Thank you.
