Joe

Part of CWLD team
Originally in 1983 and has returned as General Manager since September 2012.

Enjoys working at CWLD
Because our customers are great as well as interesting people. Plus the energy and enthusiasm of our CSU student customer's is contagious.

Background
Moved to Fort Collins in 1983 after graduating from Utica College in upstate New York. I have worked in the liquor industry ever since, holding manager positions at the Retail and Wholesale levels, and have owned and operated two liquor stores in Colorado as well.

Outside of CWLD
My wife and I enjoy rooting for the Rams, especially the Football and Basketball teams. We have also been season ticket holders for the Colorado Avalance since their first year in Colorado.

For fun
I like to hang out with my wife and family dog at home if we're not attending CSU or Avalanche games. I also enjoy getting together with old friends (all CSU Alumni) a few times a year for golf trips, the Mountain West Championship games in Vegas, and the CSU/CU football game in Denver. I also like golfing in the spring and summer. The golf stops in the fall for football season, which is my favorite. I'm a big NY Giant fan, but love watching Peyton Manning do his thing, even though Eli is better. Now that's funny stuff?

Favorite picks
Macallan 18yr, Jameson 18yr and Stranahans whiskey. All with a good cigar like Arturo Fuente or Rocky Patell. Odell's I.P.A, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc's, and big California Cabernet or Zinfandel with a juicy steak.
