What would you like to know about me? I’m a WNY native, born and raised in Springville, and I haven’t really left the nest much. I live in North Evans now with my wife Brandi and two kids Madelynn and Maverick. They kind of run my world and that’s how I like it. But when I’m not taking them from place to place, my newest hobby is taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I’ve been taking that for about two and a half years now, so it’s not uncommon to find me at my dojo. I also own a sound system, so I’m busy…a lot. Down time? I don’t get a lot of that, but when I do have some time to relax, I love to fish, camp, hang out by a fire, play some poker and generally anything that involves hanging out with friends with some ice-cold beers. I love Buffalo for its seasons. Although I'm admittedly not a fan of being cold, I love outdoor sports like skiing and snowboarding. I never have enough time for that though through all the shoveling and snow blowing.

Jennifer Lawrence Has The Best Post-Oscars Interview Ever [VIDEO]

Ok...I'll say it. I'm not really into the Oscars. I don't really watch the classy, well done movies much. I watch comedies. More often than not, the dumber the humor, the better.  There is, however, one actress who has recently caught my eye. It's Jennifer Lawrence, and she might have my favorite Post-Oscars interview ever.

Ten Tips To Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

New research suggests that people gain an average of one pound from Halloween to New Years Day.  That doesn't sound bad.  The problem is that we don't tend to lose that pound.  Do that for 20 years and suddenly you're over weight.  I'm not normally one to worry about it.  I believe that holidays are meant to be celebrated.  But...
