Born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey. Studied at St. Ann School, Notre Dame High School, and St. Joseph’s Seminary.
Growing up, I never fit in with the usual cliques. I had very few friends, mostly acquaintances. I was only comfortable serving in church or escaping in music. I attended seminary and, when 27 years old, became a Deacon as part of my last phase, awaiting my call to Holy Orders…but that never happened, because “he” called me to the Red Court instead.
