I grew up on Harsens Island and attended Algonac High School. I went on to graduate from Michigan Technological University with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. I also have received my Masters in Business Administration from Old Dominion University and am currently enrolled in Michigan Tech's Masters of Civil Engineering program. After graduating college, I moved to Virginia where I worked for the Naval Surface Warfare Center as a Mechanical Engineer and Program Manager for nine years. In 2013, I took a position as Vice President of Champion’s Auto Ferry and moved to the Marine City area.
Prior to being elected to the City Commission, I served on Marine City’s Planning Commission and Infrastructure Committee. Outside of work and government service, I enjoy scuba diving, hunting, rebuilding classic cars, and enjoying time with my wife and two daughters.
