Personal Biography
My background is steeped in working hard, public service, a commitment to public education and a belief that we must never forget our veterans. Those veterans that have passed and those that remain. These lessons were learned in a family where everyone had a duty [a requirement to help if you will] to keep the family afloat. My dad, a strong union voice who worked at a local newspaper and always had a second job of some sort. A strong man that always found time to help those in need and to give back to the community. My mom an RN that worked the night shift and a small family of three children who shared the household chores.

This is background that served as the incubator for my work ethic and a commitment to public service and education. As an Army veteran whose college education was abruptly ended due to the draft and on-going war, that commitment to country was fostered. After concluding my Army service, I returned to college and completed my bachelor’s degree. Over the ensuing years I matriculated with a Master of Science and a CAGS in Educational Leadership while serving in multiple roles beginning as a substitute teacher and concluding as a high school principal. During that period of educational experience, I also served twelve years a college department chair, teaching member of the faculty and twenty years on my hometown school board. I supplemented this work with over twenty-five years of high school and college coaching and officiating.
