I have lived in Manchester for nearly a decade. While New Hampshire was not my first home, I chose to live here because of the strong sense of community and respect for the individual that lives in the residents of the "Live Free or Die" state. I am the proud son of a decorated Vietnam veteran and the brother to another veteran. I graduated from a small university in rural Tennessee with a BA in Economics and Political Science.
During the work day I wear several hats. I run a small communications consulting company, have a full time day job, and am a member of several clubs and organizations. One of my passions is DIY home improvements which is a set of skills I learned from my parents growing up. They taught me that hard work, doing the right thing, and giving back always pays off in the long run, which are values that I still hold dear today.
I purchased a small duplex on the South side of Manchester which took me from being a renter to first time homeowner. While I love my little section of the city, I see there are serious problems that need addressing such as homelessness, crime, and educational opportunities for all students. In December of 2019 on my 30th birthday I became engaged to my best friend Sammi after being in a wonderful relationship for six years.
In my spare time I enjoy running (some days more than others!), recreational shooting sports, and watching cars go in circles (aka NASCAR). A perfect Sunday for me is choosing between watching the Patriots and the race.
