I am a lifelong resident of the Town of Big Flats. I graduated from Horseheads High school and then entered the work force. Throughout my working career I have earned a living as a certified welder, a heavy equipment mechanic and operator, and for over 35 years, a NYS licensed water operator.  I retired from the Big Flats Water Department in 2019 after over 34 years with the Town. I served as Water Supervisor, Water Operator II, and Operator-In-Charge during my tenure with the Town. Over the years I have been the president of Little League, a member of the Big Flats Volunteer Fire Department and am currently a small business owner.
My family has been in the Town for over one hundred years. I raised my family in Big Flats, in the same house I was raised in. I am the father of three boys, who continue my entrepreneurial spirit, and grandfather of three.  
As a resident and former employee, I am familiar with all aspects of the Town and its goings on. I look forward to serving the residents and the taxpayers of the Town of Big Flats.
