I like to solve problems and make things we all do better, simpler, and all around more enjoyable. I have a passion for using the latest and greatest technology in new ways. That’s partly how InsureMyTrip was born – I used my business, engineering, programming, insurance and Internet knowledge to create a totally new model that changed travel insurance forever.
I really enjoy getting my hands dirty and trying new things. Some say it’s the MacGyver in me – I just think anything’s possible. It's the way I operate both at work and at home, finding new challenges and trying out solutions. For example, a few years back, I took a shot at fully automating my home. In 2012, I obtained my Private Pilot’s Certificate and have been intrigued at the concept of situational awareness and the structured conversations of Air Traffic Control. And most recently, my wonderful wife, two awesome girls and I have been enjoying living on a farm. We have two horses, three sheep and 16 chickens (and that’s a lot of animals for a guy from Long Island).
In my professional life, I am proud to have created InsureMyTrip and grow the company to be a leader in the industry. A few years back, I was honored to serve as the travel insurance industry’s association President. I also enjoy mentoring new companies and entrepreneurs who have great ideas, but don’t know how to go about making those ideas a reality.
So, if you see me at the office, find me online, catch me on the farm, or stop me in the hangar, say hi, and I’d love to talk innovation together.
