I have been buying and selling machinery and equipment used in the chemical processing, plastics, packaging, and food and beverage industries for over 14 years. I have negotiated transactions for individual pieces, plant lines, complete operating plants, and ongoing businesses. I enjoy travel, and have conducted business globally. I believe that honesty and open communication are keys to building lasting relationships with clients on both a business and personal level. Closing a plant or business is not easy, and in these times, trust is crucial.
Tell me one of your pet peeves.
Being late. I don't like to be late, and I respect other people's time.
If I could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve...
Brioche french toast with bananas and maple syrup. I really don't need a holiday, but why not??
Cats or dogs?
Dogs. While they need more attention than cats, they are always happy to see you.
If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?
I'd be in the islands. I like the beach and the ocean. Sometimes it's rough and sometimes it's calm.
If we went to happy hour, what would you order?
A vodka martini straight up, with 3 blue cheese olives in a chilled glass.
Finish this sentence. On Saturday mornings, you can usually find me...
What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
Fixing things. I like to think mechanically, and sometimes I'll take on a project just to fix something.
What are some causes you care about.
Diabetic research. My daughter was diagnosed with Type-1 at 3. She just turned 20. It changed her life, and mine.
What would be your personal motto?
If I can't say it to your face, then I don't say it.
