[+] About

[-] About

  • I'm an alumni of the University of Massachusetts with a Bachelor's degree in the concentration of marketing from the Isenberg School of Management. Having grown up in Western Massachusetts and lived in Boston, I'm a New Englander at heart. Growing up I've had a lot of hobbies and passions and of all my passions, skateboarding has been my favorite. As a skater of 15 years, I know a lot about falling down and getting back up and the value of determination and hard work. These values have stuck with me and I try to utilize them in my everyday professional life to achieve success. Want to hear more? Connect with me on LinkedIn!
