A typical day in my life includes…

a strong cup of coffee, checking in with my family and hopefully seeing my kids play, running to a few outlets that carry Vitani to check on orders and reaching out to new contacts. Always a drink at night with my wife.

in Washington DC.

a good drink.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a financial advisor.

I’m inspired by…

my father.

The one person who motivates me is…

Jackie, my wife and co-founder of Vitani.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

the lack of tolerance for people that don’t have the same beliefs as you. For example, politics.

The perfect day would be…

vacation: wake up, eat, drink, relax, eat, drink, eat, drink, relax, sleep.

My first job was…

in seventh grade. I worked for an electronics shop, stocking shelves and cleaning.

Cabo, to have my perfect day.

My life…
