2017 Three-Day Getaway in Hudson Valley

This summer feels like it flew by. Between doing a bit of fishing, driving the kids to outdoor track and field, volunteering at community events, going camping and of course, working, this summer was here and gone before we knew it! But a few weeks before summer escaped us we managed to take a two-some three-day getaway to one of our favorite areas, Hudson Valley, New York.

On the first day we stopped by one of our favorite delis (www.FrancosDeliandPizza.com) in Danbury Connecticut, and on the way to New York we checked out some trains at the Danbury Railway Museum. Continue reading “2017 Three-Day Getaway in Hudson Valley”


Welcome to the site

I want to thank you for taking the time to check out my page and hope you get some use out of the content posted here. As a business major with over 16 years experience leading and following others, I have learned some valuable lessons and have interesting viewpoints on topics.

Please feel free to browse, read, and share your own opinions as I offer commentary on current events, business trends, tips for operating a successful small business (which includes social media content management).

I am an older brother, a father and a devoted husband. I am 30-something year old living in Connecticut. I was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to the United States (New York City) in the early 90’s. Since then I’ve completed a career in the United States Marine Corps, I’ve earned my MBA in business, and I’ve learned a few lessons along the way.

I currently work in the public sector overseeing asset management/compliance. My other job/passion is being a business owner with my wife Raquel. We own and operate Woody Things, an online wooden crafts store (check it out!).

I am a common man with common interests. I enjoy watching some good NFL Football on Sundays (or Mondays, or Thursdays.. or every so often, Saturdays lol); I enjoy working on muscle cars; I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Connecticut’s premier academy, the Renzo Gracie Training Facility.

As an American veteran I feel there is much work to be done to empower and assist our returning vets transition back into civilian life. As such, I work hand-in-hand with Devil Dog USA, DDUSAINCInc. to make sure our vets get the assistance they’ve earned.
