Q: What’s your professional background?

I have a background in Solar Marketing.  My job was primarily talking with homeowners on how to help people live more efficiently by going solar.  I felt that working under an acclaimed management team here at FreshAddress would help me hone in on my skills and help me along my journey into the sales universe.

Q: What’s your favorite part about your role at FreshAddress?

Making sales! Joking – I’m excited to help FreshAddress develop and maintain our business relationships, as well as create new opportunities for the company.  I was surprised by how down to earth and friendly everyone in the office has been; meeting people here has been enjoyable.  Tacos and Jeopardy have also been a big plus.

Q: What are some things you enjoy when you’re not thinking about work?

Making sales!  (Seriously).  Outside of that I am an avid musician, I play drums for a jazz trio and am constantly trying to expand my musical repertoire.  When I’m not playing music and we’re not waist deep in snow, I enjoy spending time outdoors (cycling, hiking, soccer).  My favorite show is Game of Thrones and my favorite sports team is the New England Patriots.

I started a small tax and accounting firm in 1998.  Prior to that I held several positions in banking and accounting in Boston.  I’m a CPA.  In college, I had a business that delivered birthday cakes – that was before there was internet and cell phones so parents sending cakes was actually a viable business!
