Hi Hillbillies! I’m so excited to be your Warrior of the week, and I apologize in advance with my late post. For some reason I was thinking the Saturday post was on Sunday, which doesn’t make sense. I think it was just wishful thinking on having a longer weekend. Also, I want to thank Lou for asking me to be warrior of the week.

Saturday Spotlight- David Curtin

Name: David Curtin

Age:42

Marital status: married to my best friend for almost 16 years. We have an amazing 13 year old daughter and a 1 year old rescued leonburger “puppy” (he’s 115 pounds and still growing)

Occupation: I would say that I’m the Jerk of all trades. I’m a NYC Firefighter stationed In Brooklyn for 16 years (4 more to go). I also work for a moving company. I’ve been doing that for 14 years. My wife and I own our own jewelry company called Origami Owl, which is a customizable locket which tells your story through little charms. I also work for a contractor doing home renovations. So to say I’m busy is an understatement.

Hometown: Farmingville NY (literally in the shadows of the hills)

Current residence: South Setauket. Until I retire and we move down south to Texas in 5 years when my daughter graduates

Ok so where do I start! Picture it Sicily 1977. Sorry, bad Golden Girls reference, but it all started in 1977. I was born in Brooklyn to a woman who gave me up for adoption to my parents when I was 3 days old and I had a pretty good childhood.
