Oh, great. I’ve caught my Dad’s disease.
As a kid, I’d watch Dave leave early each morning. I’d see him come home late each night. The man worked some crazy hours – six, seven days a week – in an effort to build something very special. He was truly sick. And he loved every minute of it.
So who would’ve thought that one day – one night, actually – I’d find myself here in the office, writing this? And loving every minute of it.
In between, I did a fantastic 10-year tour of the LA sports marketing world, working as Director of Marketing for Westwood Sports Marketing Group and National Accounts Director at PSP Sports Marketing. At PSP I was responsible for all West Coast sales activity, developing sports marketing programs for companies like Nike, Microsoft, Sony Playstation, Honda and The Gap. I also worked on marketing projects for the Times Mirror's national newspaper group properties including the Los Angeles Times and New York Newsday.
In 1997, I utilized every sales bone I had to convince my Angelino wife to move to Providence so I could join this very special company my Dad had built. And we haven’t regretted it for a moment.
I’ve been part of building a synchronized marketing communications firm that, in turn, has built a reputation for delivering unexpected solutions and unmatched results. As President of the agency, I oversee public relations, sports marketing and interactive marketing teams for clients like Safety 1st, Nike Golf, Narragansett Brewing Company, Nike 6.0 and Swarovski. I’ve also put myself in charge of leading the agency's efforts in progressive marketing initiatives.
I graduated from Georgetown University where I earned a BSBA, a serious basketball jones and a wife. I’m active in the community I love. And I’m working on great brands with great people. Life is pretty good.
One might even say great.
