My wife and I met in my hometown on Long Island. She is from Tanzania and I am Italian-American. My parents really surprised me. They love my wife so much, I think more than they love me, sometimes.

Our Wedding was a colourful cultural experience. I abided by Tanzanian cultural tradition, more specifically, Ndamba, and went through a whole process of stating my intentions with a letter, meeting with her Father and Uncle, and having a close friend vouch for me (per tradition). Her family had a send-off party with traditional singing and dancing, speeches, and introductions of the extended family.

We had a Catholic Wedding, as both of our families are Catholic. Her family loves me, my family loves her. We are expecting a baby boy in July and everybody is so excited!
