Personally, I’ve been busy working on my home, coaching, volunteering, and I joined the Sons of Italy. Professionally, I’m continuing to grow my business.
My favorite movies are The Departed, Fight Club, and Cool Hand Luke, but I just saw the Batman Lego movie with my son and it was actually really good. The last book I read was Killing Lincoln.
