Professionally, I'm SVP of Marketing & Off-Premise Dining at Portillo's. Prior to joining Portillo’s as the company’s first ever Marketing employee, I worked in digital advertising at Google. My first job at Portillo’s was as a cashier for the brand while in high school. I have a Bachelor's degree in Marketing from Notre Dame and a Master's degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Northwestern. My favorite menu item at Portillo’s is the Italian Beef n’ Cheddar Croissant. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried one.
At home, I'm a husband, twin, and a dad to four awesome kids. I've written two books and done a TEDx talk. I'm never done learning. These thoughts are obviously my own. Enjoy the blog.
