I graduated from Horseheads High school and immediately went in the US Army where I served in Germany as a Pershing Missile Crew member for 2 years after which I reclassified and went on to work in Inpatient Psychiatry and Drug and Alcohol counseling. After being honorably discharged from the Army I bought a Sonic drive in franchise in Augusta Georgia which I sold after 2 years to work for Party City where I met my wife and start a family.
We have 3 amazing children 2 are in college (1 will be a Dentist in 2021, and 1 is studying International Business) and 1 will be a senior in high school this year and looking at going to college to work in Church Ministries.
My wife and I with our children moved back to Horseheads in 2006 to start our retail store business Party Time that we owned and operated and closed in November 2019 to pursue the opportunity to serve in the assembly. I also have my Real Estate license and am active with that as well as a top 25% performing member of our local board.
I have always been active in the community having served on numerous boards, fundraising groups,not for profits, Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, and Church. Over the years I have felt and seen first hand how our state has taken a position to be unfriendly to businesses, churches, farms, families, and individuals with what seems like very little push back for our district.
I promise to always be vocal and to always keep the constituents informed and involved with things that are happening and changes taking place!!
I HAVE FOUGHT FOR MY COUNTRY--I HAVE FOUGHT FOR MY FAMILY--I HAVE FOUGHT FOR MY COMMUNITY
