My Story

It continues to be written. All credit goes to my family, mentors, and partners who have helped shape the man I am today and have given me perspective, pause & support.

Family is Everything. Enduring and Everlasting.

My Story

A Short Journey to Now

Born into a family of entrepreneurs, my story begins with my father, Vince, and my mother, Nancy, who instilled in me the values of kindness, hard work, perseverance, and the importance of giving back. Growing up, I was surrounded by a community of peers who challenged me, inspired me, and helped shape the person I am today.

My wife, Suzie, and our family have been my rock, providing unwavering support and love throughout my journey. They’ve celebrated my successes, stood by me during challenges, and have been a constant source of inspiration and motivation.

Professionally, I’ve had the privilege of leading several successful ventures, each one a testament to the power of teamwork, innovation, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. 

From my tenure at HealthWay Family of Brands to my role as co-founder of Intellipure, each experience has been a stepping stone, a learning opportunity, and a chance to make a difference.

My education, including my time at the State University of New York at Oswego and the EO/MIT Entrepreneurial program, has been instrumental in shaping my entrepreneurial journey. It provided me with the tools, knowledge, and network to navigate the world of business.

In essence, my story is a tapestry of family, friendship, education, and entrepreneurship. It’s a journey marked by hard work, resilience, and a deep-seated belief in the power of giving back.

On Mental Health

We Are Helping People Facing Mental Health Challenges

In my journey, I’ve faced profound personal challenges that have shaped my perspective and mission. When I was 13, my older brother Rusty was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Tragically, he took his own life at the age of 19, a loss that deeply affected my family and me. This experience has instilled in me a deep commitment to raising awareness about mental health and breaking the stigma that surrounds it. In honor of Rusty, my family and I have dedicated ourselves to making a difference in our community and beyond. We’ve shared our story and made a significant contribution to Oswego Health to ensure others have access to the care they need.
