Bio
I'm a laid-back, peace-loving guy that is trying to make a new start in Massachusetts. I'm divorced and single at this point, although I'm always open to meeting new friends. I learned the tile trade from an Old World Sicilian master, starting my apprenticeship at the age of 14. I'm honest, hard-working, and hoping to develop a network of like-minded colleagues and clients.
