What is your role at ShipEngine?

Head of sales.

What does your typical work day look like?

Lots of time with prospects and customers. We have internal phone calls and meetings. In general, working on solving shipping problems for our prospects and customers with the sales team and others.

What tech do you get to work with?

Salesforce, Google Sheets, Gong, and more!

How do you spend your free time?

I love spending time with my wife and our two boys doing lots of outdoor activities — swimming, soccer, basketball, camping, tennis. I also cook (lots of BBQ) and read a lot (including the children’s books and passages our boys read daily for school).

What’s one feature of ShipEngine you want more users to discover?

All things LTL. ShipEngine enables our merchants and platforms to have one partner to work with to solve their parcel and freight shipping challenges.

How did you get into this type of work?

By working with and connecting with great people from my past — especially Tony Capasso, who is a great mentor and friend of mine.

What did you want to be when you “grew-up”?

President of the United States or a motivational speaker. I got to do one of them for a while 🙂

How long have you been working on ShipEngine?

7 months!

What are you most excited about when it comes to the future of ShipEngine?

We will soon be able to serve just about any shipping need (or opportunity) a merchant or platform has as it relates to getting a shipment from point A to point B, including LTL, local delivery, PUDO, and other options.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I am still seeking them (or else they would not be hidden)!

What is one of your proudest achievements?

Running a multicultural festival back in my hometown years ago (that ran for more than 7 years). It was awesome to see a community celebrate what’s so unique about each one of us. It still brings a smile to my face any time someone mentions it.
