Where do you feel most at home?
There are many places that I feel at home but the best place would be on the ice at the closest hockey rink. I grew up in an ice hockey town where the thing to do on Friday and Saturday night was to go watch the hockey games at the rink. I was fortunate enough to play at every level and win a championship at every level since I was 5 years old through college.
What’s your most powerful characteristic?
My ability to lead by my actions/hard work and through my voice. I captained many championship ice hockey teams and this has continued into my architecture career.
What are your top three travel destinations?
Top 3 in order from first to third would be Ireland, New Hampshire, and Boston. Ireland for family/relatives, New Hampshire for mountain biking and skiing, and Boston for the history, memories, and friends. Boston isn’t much of a travel destination since I live and work here but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else other than the first two places mentioned above.
Coffee or tea?
Depends on the day — usually it’s split during the week between Starbucks coffee at home or Celestial Seasonings Fast Lane Tea.
What’s your favorite season?
I like all the seasons with each of them focused on sports activities. Fall for mountain biking, winter for ice hockey, spring for mountain biking, and summer for road biking.
In a parallel universe, what is your profession?
It would have to be firefighting as I would be a 3rd generation firefighter within my family. I grew up volunteering and helping my dad at the local fire station and every time I hear the siren I perk up to see where the trucks’ are heading.
Where do you go for a weekend getaway?
Weekend getaways are split between mountain biking in New Hampshire and going back home to Burrillville, RI to hang out with my family and play ice hockey. Sunday’s are ideal with ice hockey in the morning and a big family dinner to cap the day.
