About me... I am 34 years old and after years of management for Abercrombie & Fitch, which took me from Nebraska to Boise, ID, and then Edmonton, Alberta, Canada I decided to go back to school and get a degree in Sports Management. I graduated top of my class and after graduation took a position with Legends Sales & Marketing (owned by the NY Yankees and Dallas Cowboys) at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska. I sold the rights to all premium seating for all non-Husker related events.
In June 2013 I accepted a promotion to be a Sales Consultant for the San Francisco 49's, still with the same company. I was promoted to Premium Sales Consultant and then we transition to working directly for the 49ers.
I took a high level position working for the University of Oklahoma athletic department after the Niners gig. Helped sell the renovated Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. I am now transitioning to a new position with the University of Notre Dame and excited for the challenge.
I am passionate about my friends and family and am looking to find that someone who will make my life complete. I have two dogs, a pembroke welsh corgi named Morgan, and a peagle named Wrigley (big Cubs fan), who help keep me grounded as well as sane.
I'm not your average guy in that I'm not a huge gym rat (work out but doesn't run my life) or meathead. While my career is in the sports industry, my real passion is people. My experiences in a leadership development program I was in for 12 years, amazing parents and 2 older sisters, faith, and education have molded me into the person I am today.
I am passionate about making the world a better place and building on the relationships I establish everyday, and doing more for others than I do for myself... It is a strength of mine, but also I sometimes find that I am too giving and have little time left for myself.
My life experiences have taught me who I am looking for, or more importantly who I am NOT looking for. My friends would say that this Italian guy has a great sense of humor, very quick witted and can make anyone laugh, compassionate, aspirational, a true gentleman, an overall great catch! haha... I could go on, but if there is more you'd like to know just ask.
While I am a young professional and am focused on my career, I think I am an even bigger kid and love laughing and having fun. Even in the workplace I am always laughing, joking around, and overall trying to make myself and others have a better day and take the edge off. There is always time to laugh and I enjoy being that constant comic relief. I am constantly quoting comedians, movies, songs whatever it may be thats relevant and putting a smile on peoples faces. Overall I am a huge goofball that knows how to be professional at work, and darn good at it...
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First dates are usually a nervous time for both people so something fun that eases the nerves, while allowing for conversation seems best. Casual drinks seems to work best, or a concert, sporting event, something like that. Give us a chance to get to know each other and see if there is a spark. Then see where the evening takes us...
