I was delighted to accept the opportunity to lead the UMass Club in February of 2016. I look forward to bringing the same level of award-winning atmosphere and service that I helped bring to the UMass Amherst Dining program where I was a senior manager since 2004. Most recently, as Director of Retail Dining, I was responsible for 32 retail food outlets; campus-wide catering; concessions; the University Club; and supervision of the $19.5 million renovation project and grand-re-opening of the nationally acclaimed Blue Wall Eatery in the Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center. I hold an undergraduate degree in Food Service Management from Johnson and Wales University, and an MBA from the Isenberg School of Management (UMass Amherst, 2009). While not working at the Club, I enjoy spending time with my wife Sara, and my two teenage sons, Davis and Andrew.

I am excited to be here on the management team here at the Club as Controller. Originally from the Boston area, I earned by bachelor’s degree in business management. After working in corporate accounting in Boston, I relocated to Aspen Colorado where I pursued work in resort and hospitality accounting joining the Aspen Square Hotel, and on the Opening Team of Dancing Bear Aspen, a private HOA Club. After twelve years in Colorado, I returned to New England and landed on Nantucket Island. There I was on the Management team in Accounting for Nantucket Island Resorts for six years. I am so thrilled to be back home in the amazing City of Boston. When I am not working, I enjoy visiting Aspen and Nantucket. I currently reside in the Beacon Hill Neighborhood of Boston.

As a 2016 graduate of UMass Amherst, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work at the UMass Club. During my college years, I entered the Hospitality industry working at the Wianno Club in Osterville, MA. I participated in a Food and Beverage internship, and worked my way up to a supervisory position. After graduation, I accepted a position at Charlotte Country Club in Charlotte, NC. There I participated in an extensive management internship. I had the opportunity to learn from, and work with, some of the best managers in the industry. As much as I enjoyed my time in Charlotte, I greatly desired to return to New England. I am so excited to be back home with friends and family - for the opportunity to learn and grow with the UMass Club!
