  • First and foremost, I'm a father to three wonderful children, husband to an incredible wife, and patient pet-parent to several dogs and cats. While most of my time is dedicated to my family, I also coach youth sports, participate in community service events, and do anything and everything I can to help the town I'm so proud to live in. I truly believe the best thing we can do for our future is invest in the education of kids and the world they live in.
