I will never let @yomargey down, so here are 20 facts about me. 🌎 I live in Southern California. I moved here in 1985 to go to college at UCLA. Feel free to do the math. I was born and raised on the East Coast. πŸ’ My wife Jennifer hates that I am on Instagram so much but loves EVERYTHING else about me. 😜 πŸ‘£ I have three children (and counting). One is in her 20's, one is in his 10's, and one is in his 1's. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡©πŸ‡° I lived for a few months in West Germany and for about a year in Denmark. πŸ™ŽπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ™ŽπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ™ŽπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ I am the youngest of five.
