  • What was your first job?

    Working in the QA department at my dad’s machine shop. I learned a ton about manufacturing and got to enjoy countless (free) lunches with my dad.

  • What risk in your life are you happy that you took?

    Moving to Montana shortly after college. I found a room for rent on Craigslist and headed to Bozeman without a job or friends. The trout fisheries and annual snowfall drove me West, and I bet on myself to figure the rest out. In Bozeman, I met my fiancé, started my career in M&A, and had great experiences fishing and skiing. The risk definitely paid off.

  • What is your best habit?

    Discipline in finding time to go running. It can be tough getting started, especially when it’s cold outside, but not once have I regretted going for a run.

  • What is something new you recently tried and loved?

    Surfing. I’m new to the Seacoast and have not ever lived in a coastal town, so I’m brand new to the sport. I have a lot to learn, but I’m excited to continue improving.
