In 1996, my dad quit his job to start The XLR8 Team, Inc. I was only 7 at the time, but ever since I've been living and breathing leadership development. I joined Boy Scouts with the intent to become an Eagle Scout. I strived to be the captain of every sports team I played for. In college, I had no interest in joining a fraternity until someone explained to me the leadership opportunity of becoming the president. As president of my fraternity, I created a leadership development program (based off of the process we use at The XLR8 Team) for newly-initiated brothers to develop self-awareness and prepare them for future leadership positions within the chapter. I worked as a Management Trainee for Wegmans helping them to open stores Massachusetts and striving to establish the culture (that consistently gets them rated in the top 10 of Fortune's list of Best Companies to Work For) in a brand new market that was unfamiliar with what Wegmans stands for. After a call with my dad in early 2012 about his impending retirement, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream to follow in his footsteps as a leadership coach.

At The XLR8 Team, we first help take leaders through a personal and professional transformation to develop their self-awareness and connect them with their purpose and values. We then help them get intentional about creating an organizational culture that truly lives its values.

When I'm not working, I have a passion for health and fitness, cooking, being outdoors, playing soccer, tennis and hockey, traveling and reading. I am a diehard Syracuse Basketball Fan and also a huge fan of RA Dickey.
