About me

I am the CEO of a cell therapy company in Boston. Skiing, rock climbing and the outdoors in general are a way to recharge and balance the challenges of drug development, company building and raising funds to support those efforts.  

We’ve lived and skied around the country and world, the most rewarding days are with my wife and favorite ski partner Cristina, and my boys Noel & Ben.

Why am I doing this?

We’ve had several close family members impacted by cancer, my father-in-law Giorgio and my uncle Skip both passed away from it.  And most recently, our dear friend Goro lost his long battle with cancer.  Despite the incredible innovations by the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry, we have much to do to develop additional curative therapies and increase access to patients. 

Whether we engineer cells to fight cancer or other life-changing conditions, we in industry have a commitment to increase awareness and accelerate product development in partnership with amazing organizations such as Fred Hutch.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is an opportunity to combine my passions for the outdoors and biotechnology and give back to the broader patient community.
