Biography

It is the summer of 2022, and I am beginning my journey at Brand Fuel. To cover the basics, I was born and raised in New Jersey and attended college in Maryland.  After acquiring my college degree, as well as an Old Bay addiction, I headed back to the Garden State to figure out my life.  I accepted a job in the promotional industry way back in 2002 and totally got sucked in.  The quoting, sourcing and endless variety of products fueled me every day.  I now have 20 years of experience as I join the Brand Fuel team and start another chapter in my life.

When I am not in work mode, you will find me running miles, going to concerts, kayaking, hiking and attempting to bake.  I have a silly Boston Terrier, Watson, who is my sidekick at all times.  I appreciate classic Corvettes, campfire s’mores and shark movies.
