Food is interlaced throughout my life. My personal interests in food flow into my professional life and it's where I find my balance. I was raised alongside an Italian grandmother that had a propensity to make food, great food, part of happy and sad celebrations. For the better part of my life I have also lived in Vermont. This creative and tiny little state has accomplished great things when it comes to food. Amazing cheeses, beers, specialty food producers, farmers are all around us. My choice to serve these pioneers was a bit selfish. I wanted to work with very passionate and caring individuals. And my experience has shown me nothing but that. I am a member and board member of the Vermont Specialty Food Association, a Mentor in residence at Branchfood in Boston, a member of the Food Consultants network and a member of the national Specialty Food Association. This is where I belong and I'm doing what I love around people I admire.

About Products

Rival Brands develops a true brand strategy as a means to provide branding, design and packaging solutions that will perform. Aesthetics alone can not drive long-term success. Branding questionnaires only work if you have the answers. We predicate our work and solutions on data-driven observations and insights and believe there's no other way to do this type of work.
