Howie was born the middle child of a massive Catholic family and learned early on that being sensitive and emotional was the best way to get picked on and overlooked. So instead he decided to be louder and more obnoxious than everyone else. He’s still learning that negative attention isn’t a good way to make friends or keep girlfriends.
Howie graduated with a degree in computer science and has worked as a programmer for many years. He enjoys rubbing his money and success in the faces of his friends, and adamantly denies that he is, in any way, a nerd.
