“Philanthropy is a priority in our lives. Meaningful donations help remind us how fortunate we are, and advance the important work of organizations such as Cornell Botanic Gardens.”


I am the founder and CEO of two corporations dedicated to developing and marketing unique protein and value-added perishable foods to leading retailers and industrial manufacturers. I led the startup of two businesses that now gross $45 million annually, leading me to be seen as an innovative leader in both co-manufacturing and distribution of perishable foods. One of my companies, SmartPrice, has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the 500/5000 fastest-growing private companies in America for five consecutive years (2011-2016).

I have also been a national sales and marketing executive in the meat industry, selling to chain restaurant headquarters, key industrial food manufacturers, and corporate food service distributors throughout the U.S.  I’m a highly accomplished sales manager, team leader and key account sales executive with an established track record in being able to evaluate the marketplace, identify customer needs, design solutions and plan to grow the business profitably.
