Career background / highlights: I hold a bachelor’s degree in Business and have been with RogersGray for five years.

Community commitment: I am a 2017 graduate of the Community Leadership Institute and served on the Leadership Cape Cod Executive Board as their treasurer from October 2018 to September 2021. I now spend much of my time with my kids and the various youth programs they are just beginning to get involved in.
Favorite professional moment: Working through the diversity we all faced with COVID in 2020 and overcoming all obsta- cles to achieve my professional goals and be awarded the Sales Person of the Year Award.
Who is your role model / mentor? All the wonderful people who inspire me with their books and podcasts, including: “How to be a Great Dad” (Larry Hagner); “Confidence Building” (Dr. Aziz Gazupura); “Peak Physical and Mental Performance” (Dr. Andrew Huberman); Lewis Howes' “School of Greatness” and “The Iceman” (Wim Hof).
What mistake has taught you the most? Tearing my ACL in 2010 was the first real injury I ever had. I heard so many different stories from people who have had the same injury and about their recovery or lack thereof. I was determined to fully recover and I learned the true impact of mindset and focus on achieving a result. I have had zero physical setbacks and emerged from the injury more active and confident than ever.
What one book has impacted your life? “Invisible Man” by Ralph Ellison
What is your superpower? Staying calm in stressful situations.
Where can you be found on the weekends? Playing on the beach or exploring in the woods with my wife and kids.
