Candidate, MS Digital Innovation in Marketing, Fox School of Business, Temple University, Class 2017
Born and raised on Long Island, NY, I was always charged by the nightlife and dining experiences of the Big Apple. In addition, being second generation to the hospitality industry, I started my life at an early age, washing dishes and waiting tables, to eventually graduate from the Cornell Hotel School and begin a career in hospitality, marketing and technology.
Upon graduating Cornell, I took a restaurant management position with a W Hotel in Manhattan. However after a couple of years upon graduating from college and what was already a long career in restaurant & hotel operations, I left operations to pursue careers in Real Estate Finance, Marketing and Technology.
In 2007, I was a solo-preneur and launched eNight.com, a nightlife and restaurant branding website that acts as a social media website which added about 5,000 members until challenges with tech and competitors like Facebook made it difficult to stay alive. After successfully failing at this endeavor, I took my incredible experience with eNight and worked with other entrepreneurs in their ventures for the next 10+ years including alongside founders of other startups like Pocket Change, WeWork, Route 66 Smokehouse, Mind Warehouse, Campus Coliving, and Hotel Insider.
Currently I work for Planday, a company that is changing the way shift-based businesses like hotels, hospitals and security agencies schedule, collaborate, and communicate. I’m also a board advisor at St. Josephs College School of Hospitality and a candidate to graduate with Masters from a dual program with the Fox and MIS schools at Temple University where I’m studying the merger of marketing, systems and big data.
