As a runner, I have 7 marathons and 15 half marathons under my belt since 2011, despite really hating the sport when I was growing up in NJ. Running was more of a necessary evil for other sports I played when I was young but now, running brings a sense of purpose, necessity, and meditation.
As my full-time, day job goes, I work for a large, wholesale B2B chemical distribution company that is based in Downers Grove, IL. I lead a global team, responsible for building marketing automation capabilities across 19 countries.
As for charities, I ran on behalf of ‘Open Heart Magic’ (a NPO that does bedside magic) for 7+ years before I started running for American Cancer Society last year.
My wife and I reside in Chicago, IL, so you will usually see me logging my miles up and down the Riverwalk and Lakeshore path.
