Tell Us A Little About Yourself

I am from Doylestown, PA and a graduate of the University of Delaware with degrees in Marketing and Economics.

Happily married with a beautiful wife, Patrice, and four amazing kids, Ethan, Bella, Lucy, and Trent – my family life consists of living vicariously through them. I log close to 25k miles per year on my truck, despite working 17 miles from home. Those are school bus-like miles, running my kids to basketball, baseball, lacrosse, dance, cheer, etc. I love it! Your kids grow up so fast, it’s so exciting to give them as many opportunities as possible and be there for them all.

How Did You Hear About Gen3 Marketing?

I was involved in some of the first discussions about Gen3’s creation, before the business had a name.  Andy, Mike and I spent time working together across three different companies over eight years before they decided to open Gen3.  As soon as business development reached the point that I could join Gen3, I did.

What’s Your Favorite Thing About Working At Gen3?

My favorite part of working at Gen3 is being a part of a high-growth agency environment.  We’re always evolving, always working to be better than we were yesterday.  After working in performance based marketing for 16 years, it’s still exciting to come to work every day knowing it won’t be exactly the same as it was the day before. There will new challenges, new goals, and the results of our efforts are absolutely measurable.

What Did You Do Prior To Joining Gen3?

I was the Director of Online Acquisitions at Advanta Bancorp (SEM and Affiliate) from July 2004 – December 2008.

What Do You Like To Do When You’re Not Working?

Some of my hobbies include: home remodeling, Philadelphia sports, road trips, and binge DVR catch-ups after a long week of work.

My favorite weekend activities include: Trying to unwind, nap and manage my schedule, and making sure I get the kids to all their activities.

If You Could Describe Working At Gen3 In One Word, What Would It Be?

What Is Your Favorite Vacation Spot?

Anywhere with a beach and comfortable chairs.

What Is Your Biggest Pet Peeve?

Bad drivers.

What Would Be Your Dream Vacation?

Taking my wife and all our kids somewhere memorable – like a long European cruise. That, or hanging out for a week at Dave Matthews’ house.
