Born and raised in Dorchester (St Mark's). BC High graduate and then Fairfield University (how I got nutmegged and have not left CT). Have been a regular at Fenway in Loge Box 127 since the late 90's (and my Dad had stake in the same seats since the early/mid-80s before I took over his share). Have always loved reading up on Boston sports and our teams since I was young - especially being able to walk around and be at the Globe when my mom worked there. Always loved seeing Will McDonough, Peter Gammons, Bob Ryan, Jackie MacMullan etc around the building and being entertained by them when I did not know enough not to disturb them and wanted to pick their brains or talk about their Sunday Notes articles.
