First, I am the proud father to 2 sons and have a beautiful wife. The 4 of us make a great team and nothing is more important.
Quick History: After escaping from Xavier University with a degree in business, I became employee #1 at a startup in Cincinnati. I learned more in this short stint (and got paid) than in 3.5 years of college (which took me more than a decade to pay off).
After the towers came down I moved to Los Angeles for several years and held a menagerie of jobs including starting my own company in the Healthcare / Insurance field. These few years were some of the greatest learning experiences of my life. Although I would miss them greatly, I hope one day my sons travel to a far away place and figure out how to make it on their own.
I accepted a 2 year stint with my father back in 2005 to move back to Ohio and help with an ever growing business. Once committed to this place, I have yet to find the finish line! My brother joined the team a few years later and we all went through the hell of 2009-10 trying to keep the place together. This was another excellent learning experience that has forged our company, team and myself as a leader.
Today I "sit in the pointy end of the boat" for our team of 50+ of hard working men and women. We work every day at being world class in our niche and I'm extremely proud of what we have been able to build.
Networks: I'm one of the 4 people who never got on The Facebook and I rejoined Twitter during the 2015 NBA Finals. My social media is very limited... I prefer old school communication. You can also follow QT Equipment on a few social media platforms:
