Tell me about yourself!
I’m an avid soccer fan, dad of three, and married to the same pretty girl for twenty seven years. I enjoy knocking the soccer ball around, cycling, and spending time with my family and friends. I’m obsessed with self-help books so maybe one day I’ll figure it out. For now….I’m still a “work in progress.”
What’s the most unique part about working here?
Being able to offer support and services for literally every phase of the litigation life cycle. Elite Discovery offers so many different solutions for our clients, and that makes my job a lot more enjoyable. Being able to guide my clients and make their lives & jobs easier is very satisfying.
What have been your biggest accomplishments at Elite?
I think my biggest accomplishment at Elite Discovery has been the client relationships that have grown into friendships through the years. I truly enjoy supporting their cases, but more importantly, hearing their stories about their journey.
What skill do you think everyone should learn, and why?
Learn to communicate more effectively. I feel like strong communication skills can help with being successful in many areas of your life, including both personal and professional.
Who are some of your biggest inspirations within the company?
I’m inspired by every employee who has ever worked at Elite for contributing to it’s success, but I would say especially Chis Petrucci. He inspires me the most because he was the hardest working, one of the kindest, and most unselfish people I’ve ever met. I think of him often and miss him. He was a great coworker, but an even better person.
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done?
The most adventurous things I’ve done would have to be the time I jumped out of a hot air balloon with a bungee cord attached.
What are three things on your bucket list?
I have always wanted to bungee jump off a bridge, swing on a high rope in a beautiful scenic area, fill my passport book completely, and see the northern lights.
What’s your favorite sports team?
It’s a toss up between the Chelsea Football Club, and the Dallas Cowboys.
What was the best concert you ever attended?
I’ve seen U2 several times. Every time was incredible and a bit of a spiritual experience.
Any advice you would give to yourself back when you were 21?
Live more, Laugh more, Love more. Stop worrying.
Take a deep breath….it’ll be fine. You only get one life so make the best of it, and keep living the dream!!!
