I never said most of the things I said. - Yogi Berra

I grew up in Upstate New York, near Rochester. My graduating class had 52 people in it, and it was public. I decided that I preferred meeting a new person more than every 13 years, and applied to NYU. This was a great fit for me, because it has a fencing team (of which I am now the winningest fencer of all time), a fantastic liberal arts program, and a prime location in my favorite city. And, from my count, it has at least 53 people.

I actually had a terrible experience with a not-so-ethical recruiter after graduation, and almost didn’t apply to Andiamo. I’m very glad I decided to, because I learned very quickly that not all recruiters are created equal. I’m both glad and confident to say I’m working with some really smart people here. And we like each other.

Academic Background:

New York University, B.S.  Economics


Outside of work, I’m an amateur comedian, a cinematography admirer, and a fencer. I also do magic. I’m a huge fan of games, both playing and fiddling around with designing them, and I enjoy a good marketing campaign as much as I hate a bad one.

I love jokes. I absolutely love jokes, I love to hear them, I love to laugh at them, I love to dissect them.

What I love about working/living in New York City:

I love the entrepreneurial spirit in New York, it’s tangible. There’s an undeniable sense of individuality for those who live in the city, but at the same time, it can feel just like a small town. And I’m an expert in small towns.

Also, we have The Book of Mormon.

If I could have dinner with anyone, past or present, it would be…

I’d really like to have dinner with Dave Chappelle. He seems like one of the most genuine people in entertainment.

Some of my favorite things:

My own jokes.
