I was born, raised and, still live in Gardner, Massachusetts, also known as the Chair City from its heyday of woodworking furniture factories. I think that I was meant to focus my career in the furniture industry. I am excited to bring my years of space planning, design, and product management experience to my new role as the Northeast Territory Sales Manager at Xybix.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my family. Our three kids, Annie (16), Nathan (14), and Delaney (8), keep my wife Rachel and I busy…basically playing taxi. The list goes on and on however some of these taxi stops are to support Annie and Nathan, both in the High School Marching Band, and Delaney taking both tap and jazz dance lesson. We may complain a little, or a lot depending on the day, but we love every minute of it!
With golf and running being two of my head clearing hobbies, you could say that the outdoors keeps me going. In January 2016, I ran my first marathon at Walt Disney World. It was an amazing experience that I hope to repeat in the next couple of years. Currently, I am on the leadership team of our local running group - The G-Vegas Striders (G-Vegas is another nick name for my hometown). As a team, we strive to give back to the community. Or goal is to motivate people to get moving and exercising (yes this can be a dirty word). We host workouts and running events at little to no cost, making it affordable to all. You don’t have to run…our view on it is - if you are walking or running, you are getting healthier!
Now that you know a little about me, I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.
I leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, because we're curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
