A Maryland native, Christian grew up taking summer and winter vacations in Bethany beach with his huge Irish-Italian family.  Long an amateur restaurant critic and for many years a server and manager in various food establishments, the idea of owning his own place has always appealed to him.  With a strong passion for coffee and a perceived need for a specialty coffee shop in the area, the dream of Drifting Grounds was formed. The dream became a reality when a great location opened up which was secured for both the coffee shop and his brother's toy shop, Yesterdays Fun, that will be moving from Millville to next door by the fall of 2015.

Christian loves good coffee, good food, and good people. He plans to feature all of them at his shop.  An avid scrabble player, poker player, and Ultimate Frisbee veteran, Christian plans to draw from elements of each to help ensure that every guest will enjoy their visit. If you want to know more, just ask him...  He loves to talk!
