Personal Biography
I am a retired FDNY (NYC) firefighter. My wife of twenty-three years and I have two young children a son19 and a daughter 17. After high school, I enlisted in The United States Marine Corp to serve as a C130 mechanic. After a medical discharge, I studied electronics technology at DeVry University and graduated with a 3.72 GPA. After working as an electronics technician at 3M, I decided to change careers and joined the NYPD as a police officer. After years of exemplary service, my achievements garnered me an appointment to the FDNY as a firefighter. During my career as a FDNY firefighter, I had the honor to participate in the largest rescue operation on American soil after the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Upon retirement, my wife and I decided to move out of NY to seek small government, individual liberty, and a place that respected private property rights. New Hampshire was easily our best choice as we cherish the freedom and liberty this great state guarantees. It is here that we feel most grateful, and I pledge to continuously fight to defend these freedoms.

I will uphold my oath to the constitution without question. Each piece of legislation presented will be reviewed for constitutionality and its effect on limiting the power of government. I will always balance our shared individual sovereignty and freedom against a centralized, corrupt government and will always support and defend our private property rights.
