Eddie was raised in Sayreville, New Jersey and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to get away from a growing drug and alcohol addiction. Eddie took his last drink and drug on April 13th, 2006. Combining his new-found sobriety with God, community, and fellowship, Eddie built a strong foundation of recovery. After experiencing this life-changing event and helping perform a spiritual intervention Eddie found himself passionate about serving others and helping them get out of the addiction cycle. Eddie has also served as a Neighborhood Group Leader for his church in Arizona, a Regional Alumni Volunteer for The Betty Ford Center and supported his dear friend Randy Boyd in a bicycle adventure called Ride Across America in 2017.
