How did you get into the industry?
In 1993 I got my first taste of entrepreneurship. I was 11 years old, owned a snow shovel, and RI experienced record breaking snowfall that winter. From that point on, I was convinced that working for myself was the path I needed to travel. Since then, I have employed over 500 people and started several successful businesses that range from construction, to real estate investments, to family entertainment.
I was inspired for the Launch concept after visiting an indoor park while on vacation. I reached out to business acquaintance Ty Law, who was also a 3-time Super Bowl champion and NFL veteran, to see if he would like to partner on the venture to open a similar concept in RI. With such an exciting concept in active family entertainment, Ty jumped at the chance to start this venture.
