Often referred to by his family and friends as “a man bigger than life,” he was born in New York on July 22, 1958, and spent his years traveling the world developing his mind and body, learning life skills that he loved to teach to those who knew him.

Growing up in Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and settling in the United States gave him a unique perspective on life and living it to the fullest, his family said.

From the age of 9 to 18, he was schooled at Aiglon College in Villars, Switzerland. This experience left him with a profound love of the mountains and an extended family that he kept in touch with throughout his life.
He graduated from Colgate University in 1980 and received a MBA from New York University School of Business in 1985.
