Market Manager, New York Metro & New Jersey
I'm not exactly sure of the genesis of my love for wine, I believe I've been intrigued by it since as far back as I can remember. My prior career in the restaurant business afforded me the opportunity to really exploit my interest and exposed me to some wines I'd never heard of, thus turning my curiosity into a full blown passion.
While, I enjoyed the restaurant industry very much I realized I wanted a career that was more "wine centric." I went on to work for R&R Marketing, (Charmer Sunbelt) in New Jersey and later RV Distributors/Viavino in multiple markets, were I was introduced to a plethora of exciting wines from all over the world and learned a tremendous amount about this fascinating business.
Representing Folio Fine Wine Partners in New Jersey/New York is an incredible opportunity. I get to work with the most iconic family (The Mondavi's) of American wines as well as some of the most incredible and passionate people in the industry.
I live in Rockland County New York with my amazing and beautiful wife, Raquel and our always entertaining daughters Jordyn (10) and Rylee (6). We are blessed to live literally, at the entrance to Harriman State Park where we try to enjoy some hiking, swimming and as much of the outdoors as possible as well all things NY Mets and NY Giants.
