What are you known for professionally? What do you have a knack for?
Professionally I’m known to be diverse in my ability to interact with and influence people from different walks of life. I love to get to know someone on a personal and professional level to foster a relationship. I think honesty and integrity is all you’ve got in life and I think the most successful people hold true to that.
What are you most passionate about professionally? What most excites you about your work & the contribution you can make?
In prior roles I didn’t have an opportunity to make an impact in the world like I do here at Thread. I’m excited to see our mission grow and be a part of something incredible. I think I can help spread the Thread message to our partners and help them with their goals as well.
What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?
I’m passionate about seeing the world and meeting fascinating people. I love to travel and see how others are living in their daily lives, learn from them, and also share something great (hopefully). I enjoy trying new things whether it’s cities, food, music, etc. I can’t stop talking about all the great restaurants I’ve been to since moving to Pittsburgh. Coming from NYC you don’t think it can get much better but the food science here is on par.
How do you want to be remembered?
I’d like to be remembered for my willingness to be a team player. I want to be the guy people can ask anything to and if I can’t help them, I’ll stop at nothing (within the law) to get them the right answer.
