Mr. Altman is a single parent of three who has successfully navigated and trained adults on effective co-parenting, raised and taught children with special needs, and runs a leadership program called L.E.A.P (Listen, Experience, Act and Progress) that coaches kids to support other kids in efforts to build confidence and promote self-advocacy.

He is a native of Boston and enjoys spending time with his three active children. He has also been a passionate youth sports coach for the last 15 years, and a freelance sports reporter for the Associated Press (AP) covering home games for the Boston Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins.
