I grew up in Revere, MA, 6 miles from Fenway Park and home town of Freddie Cannon (real name Alfred Picarelli). Revere is also famous for having the first public beach in the United States.

I lived in New Hampshire; Sarasota, FL; Maine; Southeastern Massachusetts; Manila, The Philippines; and now I'm in Silver Lake
