I'm currently helping SavATree become a national brand. Specifically, I run the Financial Planning & Analysis function for the company with a focus on budgeting, reporting, acquisition integration, and ad hoc analysis. My current athletic focus is on improving endurance. I train approximately 10 hours a week on both cardio and strength. I have participated in numerous half marathons and recently ran the Spartan Ultra. My fitness tips are: 1) build fitness into your daily routine, and 2) train for specificity (meaning, train for the event you want to compete in). You can't do everything all of the time.

The Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), a 36-year-old, 501c3 nonprofit organization, is the nation’s largest continuously operating program for K-12 student inventors and entrepreneurs.
100% of the proceeds raised by Push For Entrepreneurship are donated to CIC.
CIC’s mission is to teach students creative problem-solving techniques through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurship, by teachers trained in CIC’s programs. CIC programs have been endorsed by CT’s educational leaders as promoting creativity and critical thinking, and have received prestigious recognition, including trips to the White House Science Fairs.
In Connecticut, more than 17,000 K-12 students in nearly 300 schools annually have CIC classroom-based programs.
Students compete in their schools and winners present their inventions at local and district events and at the state wide convention in May.
Selected state winners advance to the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan, in June.
CIC inventors comprises 50% girls and 26% minority students, with program growth focused in under-served school districts.
CIC inventors pursue entrepreneurship through patenting, investment, and commercialization.
Your donation will be used to provide hundreds of Bridgeport, Norwalk, and New Haven K-12 students the opportunity to participate in a program that will change their lives and our futures.
