WORDS I LIVE BY 

Nothing will ever be perfect. Strive for perfection anyway. Don't take life too seriously. Admit when you're wrong. Constantly improve. Money does not equal happiness, but neither does poverty. The magic is somewhere in the middle. Dance even though you look stupid, especially when you look stupid. Creativity is the new literacy. Listen more than you talk. Be nice and do the right thing. 

 


Favorite SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM

Instagram, obvi.

FAVORITE NON-WORK RELATED ACTIVITY

Being a Dad.

PHILOSOPHY:

"Long hours spent checking off a to-do list and ending the day with a full trash can and a clean desk are not virtuous and have nothing to do with success. Instead of a to-do list, you need a success list—a list that is purposefully created around extraordinary results."

 

MY STORY


I left Philadelphia and headed West to pursue my degree in Journalism and Digital Communication from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. The day I took my last final was the same day I packed my car and headed for Manhattan Beach. I enjoyed the beach life in my early 20s and met a girl named Hailee. We fell in love, have since gotten married and created two amazing daughters (although it wasn't in that order persay). 

In 2012, I joined Beachbody as a Social Media Specialist. I now creative direct and help manage a team responsible for reaching more than 20,000,000 people every single month. I love the challenge of growing online communities, creating content that impacts people's lives in a positive manner, obsessively checking my Instagram feed, and staying ahead of the latest digital trends.
