TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF

“I was born in Queens and moved to upstate New York when I was a kid. I now have 3 sons of my own and still live in upstate NY. I am a marketing executive, and currently run marketing for a venture-backed software company.”

HOW DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER ROBERT GRAHAM

“A great menswear store in Albany named Spector’s. I was picking up a suit and I stumbled upon the most amazing corduroy pants. They were Robert Graham and had a treasure trove of details. I fell in love.”

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ROBERT GRAHAM ITEM

“That is a tough question, because there are so many great pieces that I wear and love beyond just shirts, including socks, shoes, jackets, and fragrance. I would have to say my go to Robert Graham outfit is a pair of green cords and a purple t-shirt worn with a gray shawl collar sweater. I also love my Odd Man Out Limited Edition shirt for special occasions.”

WHAT ARE YOUR PASSIONS IN LIFE

“My wife and I like to say God, marriage, and family first. And then everything else. I’m passionate about those relationships and everything flows in that order of priority. I’ve also become very passionate about education and improving the process for my sons and all children.”

WHAT INSPIRES YOU

“Creation as a whole, the beauty that is all around us, the unique gifts we all have as individuals to participate in creating — whether through our artwork, music, food, business or anything else.”
