John & Michael
John was born in Fall River, MA on September 12th, 1972 to the parents of Rosalina (Pacheco) and John Moniz, Jr. He was raised on his grandparents farm in Tiverton, RI with his sisters Jessica and Cynthia. During his youth he was very involved in football, student government and was a member of the Rhode Island All State Chorus. After high school, John attended Johnson and Whales. Quickly, John realized that a career in culinary arts was not for him, and started his career in the health care field. John spent time living in Charlotte, NC before finally deciding to make a move to Salt Lake City where he spent 4 years of his life. Shortly after he moved back New England, he might Michael. Currently John is currently working for Atria Senior Living and was recently promoted to compliance manager for the states of MA, CA and NY. He is attending St Joseph’s College in Maine to pursue his bachelor’s (and potentially his masters) in Long-Term Care. He and Michael own a condo in Boston, and have rescued two dogs, Shannon and Logan.
Michael was born on January 23rd, 1976 in Putnam, CT. He was raised by his parents Fern (Fernand) Phaneuf and Lorraine (Reandeau). He was the second child of the family and was born 18 years after his sister Anne. At the young age of eight, he started figure skating, and within two years starting competing. Though he enjoyed competing in singles, his true love of ice dancing lead him to compete seriously in that discipline with a partner. Michael continued his career while attending school and was involved in music, student government and his studies. He graduated high school in 1998 and moved to Boston to attend school and train for ice dancing at the junior national level. He competed for two years, but realized that it was time to move on and he retired after his sophomore year at Babson. He graduated from Babson College in 1998 and immediately started working for EF Education. He spent 6 years at EF and had a wonderful time traveling through Europe. Currently, Michael works for Professional Staffing Group as the New Hire Training Manager.
John and Michael are currently planning a June wedding in Quincy, MA and are looking forward to a wonderful day with close family and friends.
