I was born in Erie, PA on March 27, 1972. I was raised in Springfield township on a hundred acer farm, which I have since bought and live at. I graduated from Northwestern High School and Erie County Tech School in 1990. After serving four years in the United States Marine Corps, I went to Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, PA and graduated with an Associate degree in Heavey Equipment Operations and Mechanics. I then went to work at Ditch Witch of Lake Erie for about four years and then went to work at Elk Creek Township. I have been at the Township for just over twenty years now. I started preaching in 2017 At Heartland Crossroads Ministry. The two main churches I preached at were Espyville and Calvary UMC. I was appointed there for five years. I am now serving at the Hopeful Heart Charge. I have been married to my wife Brenda since April 21, 2001. We have two children, my son Keaton and my daughter Zaleigh. As for interests and hobbies I like to hunt with my family and do wood working on my lathe.
