My parents were immigrants from Italy in the late 1950’s to the Rochester area and as a result I have been a native Rochesterian. After years of Catholic School I went to the Rochester Institute of Technology for my Bachelor’s Degree in Business and then Syracuse University for my MBA. I have spent my entire career in the printing industry with only 2 companies; International Paper and the last 22 years with Hammer Packaging. I love being outside. My wife and I love adventure. We hike, kayak, snowshoe, bike, run, swim, and most importantly take our dogs wherever we can to enjoy the outdoors. Winter in upstate NY is not an issue if you enjoy what is has to offer. Love food! My dad always said “If you love to eat, learn how to cook!” You will find me when I’m not outside in the kitchen most likely. I’m so fortunate that my treatments had the potential to take away my taste, but instead it helped me find new ways to enjoy foods and try different flavors.
