My and wife, Ann, were married in June 2000 and were blessed with three children. Our first child is Alexander. Our second child is Adriana. Our third child is Gabrielle. On July 14, 2013, a boating accident resulted in the death of our son, Alexander, and daughter, Gabrielle. Our daughter, Adriana survived but suffered a traumatic brain injury. She recently graduated from West Bloomfield High School and planning for college next Fall at OCC. We are a family of faith and thank God each day for all he has provided us.
