Growing up in a religious Italian family in Vineland, NJ, Spinnato chafed against the strict family rules but loved his family deeply. By the age of 10 he knew he wanted to create his own line of beauty products. And at the age of 20 he headed west to pursue his dreams. Over the next 25 years Spinnato experienced a number of adventures – many of which ended up in his tell-all memoir published by BookLogix.
To honor his late father and grandfather, both musicians, Spinnato established two annual college scholarships in 2015 for talented seniors at his former high school. He recently donated a well to “Wells of Life”, a provider of clean water wells in Uganda. A portion of the proceeds from Caviar & Diamonds will be earmarked for the organization.
