Corey was born and raised on Long Island, New York, where he currently lives.

He has been a dog lover all his life and currently has a 6-year old mixed breed dog named Murray, a rescue he adopted from North Shore Animal League in May 2012.

Having always dreamed of owning his own business and working with dogs, Corey decided to quit his job and become a professional dog trainer. He enrolled in an intensive program at Starmark Academy, a renowned school for professional dog trainers, located near Austin, Texas.

He holds a B.A. in psychology from The Ohio State University.
