The Jersey Shore star attended Wagner College in New York and earned his master’s degree in accounting, according to The Sun.

When Vinny first appeared on Jersey Shore during season 6 in 2023, there was a discrepancy about his age. Angelina told her castmates that her then-boyfriend was 19. In an interview, she clarified that he was in his 30s.

“People think he’s a 19-year-old that lives in my garage, and I’m like, ‘What?!’” Angelina shared. “Where did that come from? Did you see that episode where I said he was 19? He’s not 19. He’s in his 30s.” However, she did not reveal his exact age.
