What inspired you to join NADRA? Lainie chased me down for a long time and finally beat me down until I had to attend a meeting. So glad she did! NADRA has helped my business grow and I have lifelong friends within the organization.
What was the first thing you ever built? It Was a deck of course, it was a pressure-treated deck in Pittstown, New Jerse y.
How do you define success? I define success in business as the joy you feel from your work and also the joy you feel from your clients after a project is complete.
What advice would you like to share with fellow members that you have learned in your career?
Work on your business and not in it.
If you could ask your fellow industry professionals one question, what might it be?
What single action have you done that has brought you the most success?
What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this?
I would be a Sandyhook Harbor Pilot. I would have been one if I had not started my business at such an early age.
Tell us anything! Talk about your family, pets, travel, hobbies… I have an incredibly beautiful wife that has many skill sets including being a wonderful mother to my daughter Brooklyn and my stepson Cory. Brooklyn is 10 years old and enjoys gymnastics and animals. Cory just turned 18 and is heading into the Marines July 10, 2017.
My wife is a heavy equipment operator as her main job, she also performs autopsies at Hunterdon Medical Center. Lastly, she became a Hunterdon County death investigator last year. I spend most of my time running my business and trying to be as good of a dad as I can to my children. I love being on the water and have two Jetski’s and purchased the boat of my dreams last year. I plan on taking the entire month of July off this summer to spend a lot of quality time on it with my family.
