I was born and raised in the Sewickley area of western PA. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Robert Morris University with a degree in Management. I worked for 12 years in hospitality services, 16 years in software development and systems design, and 7 years in my own management training and small business consulting practice. 

I completed Licensing School in August of 2013 and received my first appointment to the Harrisville UMC. I was there for four years before being appointed to my current appointment in the Youngsville Evangelical/First UM Charge. I am beginning my 5th year in this appointment. I completed Course of Study in 2019 and all of the requirements for Associate Membership in the Conference. I became an Associate Member in June 2020.

I have been married to my wife Kathy for 41 years. We have three adult children with our first grandchild expected by end of summer 2022. I enjoy working in technology and design, cooking for and entertaining guests, and I play golf.
