Originally from the Finger Lakes Region of New York we moved to Naples, Florida during my 9th grade year of high school.  I have over 20 years of experience teaching Special Education, Social Studies, and Physical Education in Florida, New York, and Georgia. My coaching experience includes baseball, football, basketball, and cross country.  The highlight of my coaching career was winning the New York State Class B State Championship at Owego Free Academy in 1997.

Our family consists of my wife Kristal and our children Tommy and Saira. Tommy graduated from Parkview High School in Gwinnett County. He has begun a career in the United States Marine Corps as a Marine Corps Reserve and is attending the University of North Georgia.  Saira will attend Fannin County High School as a 12th grader. Saira’s interests include art, music, and photography. 

We have vacationed in Blue Ridge consistently since 2004 and we feel very blessed to live full time in Fannin County.  Our family is very excited to live in Blue Ridge and be part of this wonderful community.
