Justin Goldman graduated from Colgate University in 2003 with a degree in English (Creative Writing) and Economics. He returned to Long Island, his homeland, to help his godfather open a startup BBQ restaurant, Smokin’ Al’s. He and his wife, Andrea, moved upstate in 2011 to pursue a nicer lifestyle and their love of the outdoors. They settled in Hudson, where Justin took the helm of Park Falafel and Pizza, where he nearly doubled sales in three years. Justin left the restaurant in 2014 to pursue a career in banking with First Niagara. After a very successful year, Justin left to pursue the management training program at The Bank of Greene County. He and Andrea have a 2-year old daughter, Bessie, and live in Hudson, NY.
