Class of 2004

Job Title: Senior Product Manager, Stanley Black & Decker

Hometown: New Britain

Community Service: I serve on the American Savings Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee.

Hobbies: Spending family time with my wife and daughters and golfing poorly!

Fun Fact: I participated in the Disney College Program which allowed me to move to Florida and work at Epcot as a paid intern for a semester.


Bachelors of Science - Marketing from Central Connecticut State University

Masters in Business Administration from University of Connecticut

When I first started college, I was not sure what I wanted to do, but knew that furthering my education would be the key to my future success. After determining “Business” was the path for me entering my Junior year, I was able to secure an internship at Stanley Black & Decker and have never looked back.
