That incident changed his life from then on, making him commit to living with his personal values at the forefront. 

Groups you were born into and belonged to: 

Ron was raised in a classic New York City Italian family – with love, unfiltered emotions and humour. His youth group at church provided him the formative experience of learning about values, community, friendships, and participating in each other’s lives. 

Temperament and personality influences

The youngest of five children, Ron grew up as a witty, free-spirited, creative rebel. He is also what you could call a social introvert, who loves engaging with people, but also needs solitude. 

He grew up with an insatiable curiosity, wanting to learn, know and grow.
