Personal Biography
When I was a kid, I moved around quite a bit. By the time I left for college, I had already lived in 8 different houses in two states and three different countries. I never really felt like I had a “hometown” and I always missed that. I came to work in Hampton for the first time in 1982. This is where I met my wife and after moving around a little more, this is where we settled in 1997 and raised our daughter and son who both attended Hampton's public schools. This is the hometown I missed growing up. I have a degree in economics from Bowdoin College and a Master's in Business Administration from the Tuck School at Dartmouth College. I began my professional career working for Wheelabrator Technologies, a developer and operator of alternative energy projects for 8 years. I then spent over 20 years working in a variety of human resource management roles for organizations such as Raytheon, Fisher Scientific, Fidelity Investment and Comverse Technologies. I joined One Sky Community Services, a NH nonprofit based in Portsmouth providing services to individuals with developmental disabilities, in 2015 as their Chief Executive Officer. I retired from that position in 2020.
Local Government Involvement
Between 2012 and 2015 I was a member of the Winnacunnet (High) School Board, serving as chair of the board for two of those three years. I am particularly proud of the technology plan we developed then that proved so critical these past several years. Between 2012 and 2014 I was honored to serve as one of Hampton’s NH State Representatives. As a State Rep I served on the Coastal Risks and Hazards Commission and helped draft our state’s first plan to address the challenges posed by climate change. I also sponsored a bill that made New Hampshire the first state in the country to ban the practice of paying individuals with disabilities a sub-minimum wage.
Miscellaneous Information:
My parents were both immigrants to this country from The Netherlands. They lived the American Dream, and they instilled in me the American values of hard work, determination and integrity. These are the values I have tried to live by and will bring to Concord as one of Hampton's five state representatives. I realize that not everyone in Hampton voted for me, but I will do my best to serve as a representative of ALL the residents of Hampton and do what I believe is in the best interests of them and our entire state.
