65 West 90th Street

I was born at St. Vincent’s Hospital on West 12th Street to my Jewish Mother, Sheila, and my Afro-American Father, Miles. Lived on West 57th Street, before my parents and Sister, Emily, moved to the Upper Westside in 1971 into a newly built Mitchell-Lama (St. Martin’s Tower).

I attended PS-84 on West 92nd Street. Upon graduation from Elementary School, my parents enrolled me at The McBurney School on West 63rd. At McBurney, I ran cross country, wrestled, played football and baseball. After McBurney, I went to Cornell University and received my Bachelor of Science in Human Development & Family Study in 1990. At Cornell, I played baseball, sang in the Pamojani Gospel Choir, was a member of Black Students United and the Minority Student Organization.

After college, I played Professional Baseball in the US & the Dominican Republic. In 1994, I became a Member of the American Stock Exchange where I traded Equity Derivatives. During this time, I ran in the NYC Marathon. Boxed in the Daily News Golden Gloves. Studied a little Musical Theater at Juilliard and made my Stand Up Comedy Debut at Stand Up New York on West 78th Street. In 2002,  I got my NYS Real Estate Salesperson’s License and am a Salesperson at Brown Harris Stevens. In 2006, I founded the New York Grays Baseball Club and currently our Director of Operations, www.NewYorkGrays.org . The Grays are a 501c3 helping track kids to college through education and using Baseball as a facilitator to get admission into College. 2021, will be our 15th Season.

I have been on the Board of Directors for my Co-op since 2005 and am currently the board’s President. I have been a member of the West 90th Street block Association for many years, and recently took over from our beloved, Ann Marie Resor, as President.

          Oh yeah, I may have played Charlie Brown in Goddard Riverside’s Production of . “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown”
