Growing up in Long Island, NY, with my parents and older sister, people knew me as a big-hearted kid with an easy smile and great sense of humor. OK, maybe I joked around a little too much in class, but I was always known for being kind and generous to everyone and anyone. 
   I’ve always had a knack for relating to kids on a level where they feel safe, special and free to have fun -- my nephew Jordan even calls me his “best friend Mike.” This ease with children led me to my first job after graduating from Towson University: working as an instructor at kid’s gyms. 
    While I loved spending my days playing with children (and Alyssa found it endearing), I always knew my passion was collecting and selling vintage sports jerseys, memorabilia and clothes. With my wife’s encouragement and support, I turned an eBay hobby into a thriving business with a devoted following and a retail store in New York City. We have our own little family at the store, and it’s a place that kids love to visit and play video games like NBA Jam while their parents shop and enjoy the nostalgia.
    When I’m not at the store, I like to spend my time attending sports events (go Knicks!), visiting flea markets, supporting other local businesses and, of course, spending time with Alyssa, whether we’re cooking dinner together, watching movies or hosting one of our out-of-town friends at our apartment for the weekend.
