1. What is your current occupation?
Director of Underwriting for MVY RADIO

2. What do you love most about your job & why?
Working with an incredibly talented group of people at the greatest radio station on the entire Cape & Islands radio dial. 88.7 FM and streaming worldwide on the mvyradio app.

3. What has changed in your industry in the past five years?
The listening habits of the radio consumer. The higher audio quality of music streaming services and the numerous hardware devices that they use to consume our product. The audio quality and portability of these devices has improved leaps and bounds. In fact I listen in my home on both an Amazon Alexa and a Como Audio Amico. People can listen to mvyradio everywhere in the world and our research is reflecting that.

4. How has CapeSpace improved your work life?
While it is great to be able to work from my home office I do find it energizing to work in an environment where other professionals are pursuing their passions.

5. What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I’m a diehard and passionate sports fan so weekends are spent watching live sports in my living room. My wife Beth and I also enjoy dining out at the Cape’s many great restaurants like Bleu in Mashpee Commons as well as long walks on the various Cape & Island beaches.

6. What is your favorite place on Cape Cod?
Anywhere on The Cape Cod National Seashore.

7. If you could invite any three people living or dead to a dinner party who would they be and why?
Audrey Hepburn, Paul McCartney and Pedro Martinez. Audrey because of her humanitarian work and incredible fashion style, Pedro because he was the most electric and talented Boston athlete that I have ever seen and Paul McCartney because…do you really need to ask?

8. What is your superpower?
Music trivia contests…just try and beat me!
