I grew up in Whitestone, New York and went to school at Fordham Prep and Columbia University. I work as a video engineer on commercials. My wife and I and our two boys live in Brooklyn.
I bought the house before I was married as a place my family could meet for holidays. It was also near to Hampton Bays where my sister had moved in the 1990's. Now that we have kids the house is again something new. We decided to shorten the deck and bring in 80 tons of clean sand to create a private beach above the real one four feet below the walkway in this picture of my son. We also ran a picket fence around the front yard to keep in our kids and our dog where we can see them. This year we renovated and heated the garage for a rainy day play room with a pool table. The house is always a work in progress but it is nearly all that we ever hoped it could be.
There is a magical feeling about the house, the nearness to the water. Waking up and having tea or coffee on the beach after an outdoor shower is always vacation to me. Having a small fire in the pit on the beach in the evening is another one of my favorite things to do with the kids.We go through a lot of marshmallows.
