I am 32 and live with my girlfriend, Maria, and our two cats in the fun, quirky, post-industrial city of Rochester, NY. Since 2004, I have worked as a public opinion researcher and strategic advisor to political candidates, organizations, and businesses. Maria and I have also have a small real estate business, where we renovate and rent out apartments in Rochester. In my free time, I like to travel, hopelessly root for the Buffalo Bills and Sabres, attend Rochester's many festivals or cultural events, and enjoy good food and drink with family and friends. I speak decent French and can get by in German.
