Q: How do you prefer to start your day?
A: I start my day by taking my dog for a walk around the block. When I get back, I have a nice hearty breakfast. Finally, I take a shower and dress to impress!
Q: What’s your go-to productivity trick?
A: Each morning, I set a list of 5 goals I would like to complete by the end of the day. Whenever I have spare time during the workday, these are the projects that I fall back on.
Q: How did you start working for Bridge Loan Network?
A: A few years ago, the owner of the company reached out to me directly to start doing some side projects. Once they were complete, he wanted to bring me on in a Business Development role. I have been a Bridge Loan Network man every since.
Q: What’s a work-related accomplishment that you’re really proud of?
A: When I started with Bridge Loan Network, there were only three members of our team and we were in the startup phase. This year (2020) alone, we have added four new employees and over 100 clients. Being apart of this growth has been my greatest accomplishment of my career so far.
Q: What was your first job?
A: I graduated with an Accounting Degree from UConn and started at a Big 4 firm soon after college. I quickly realized that the accounting industry was not for me and that is when I made the switch to Bridge Loan Network.
Q: Are you an early bird, or night owl?
A: I am definitely a night owl.
Q: If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
A: I would love to be able to fly.
Q: If you could only have three apps on your smartphone, which would you pick?
A: Spotify for my music, The Weather Channel since I spend all of my spare time outside, and the MLB app as I am a huge baseball fan.
Q: What’s one song you have completely memorized?
A: Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band. To this day it is my favorite song.
Q: What’s your most used emoji?
A: The money bag.
Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: I wanted to play First Base for the New York Yankees. Sadly, I had to settle for First Base at Slow Pitch Softball.
