A little about me, I currently own a manufacturing & distribution firm which has clients around the nation. LYO not only has become a big part of my life, but an amazing experience as well.

Shortly after moving with my family to New Jersey in 2002 from Canada , I joined the Lad Youth Organization when it was still in its birth. I have seen it prosper since then and I am proud to be a part of this great team. I take care of the visual and graphic design components and try to help out when and where I can. I have made good friends and contacts because of this group and I am excited to meet more people as we begin to reach farther out. I currently live in New York City where I am pursuing an Architecture degree at the New York Institute of Technology. My motto is "To learn it, experience it"; because of this I lead a well balanced life and find myself learning something new everyday.
