I moved to the US when I was 8 years old from Sicily, Italy. Ever since I can remember, I was always thinking of the new innovative idea or invention to solve an inconvenience. I also liked engineering and creating something that I envisioned in my mind, and because of this, I was always fascinated with architecture and thought that was where I’d end up.
However, after a few semesters of college I found myself more interested in business. My family being business owners, I thought rather than going to school to learn business, I’d immerse myself and learn from first-hand experience by working with them at their restaurant. If being a restaurant manager taught me anything, it was patience, always being in the mindset of “how can I serve others,” and to always have our client’s priorities first.
In 2016, Christina and I started Black Paw. We fell in love with the idea that we could help others achieve a better life while also providing a better future for ourselves. I’ve always had that inner desire to help people, and I envision one day in the future I’ll be able to do it on a much larger scale.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me outside, reading, hanging out with my two best friends Christina and Meeko (my German Shepherd), traveling, playing soccer, at the beach, or eating gelato. I hope to one day get to meet you and work together!
