I am a resident of Park City and Summit County, settling here, in 2006, after 58 years of travel that included residence in 8 states and 3 foreign countries and work in over a dozen other countries.
After growing up in urban New Jersey (Paterson), rural Pennsylvania (near Hershey) and upstate New York (Poughkeepsie), I attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, graduating in 1969 with a BS in Aeronautical Engineering.
My 6 years in the USAF included 2 combat tours in the Vietnam War as a Forward Air Controller (15 Air Medals, DFC). I spent nearly 3 ½ years of my 6 years outside of the US, in Vietnam, Thailand and West Germany.
I spent 30 years in the corporate world as a safety engineer and manager for the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies, working out of offices in Los Angeles, Boston, Northern N.J. and South Florida. During the final 12 years I traveled primarily to most of Latin America, but also to Canada and Europe. I retired from Chubb in 2005 as a Vice President in charge of Latin American Loss Control.
In 2010 I joined American Legion Post 14 in Park City and was drafted into the position of Post Adjutant in 2011.
My wife Shirley and I served on the board of Habitat for Humanity of Summit and Wasatch Counties and were instrumental in 3 house builds, a house renovation and the opening of the ReStore over the 6 years on the board.
Summit County Council
I ran for HD 53 in 2010 and HD 54 in 2014 and was elected to the Summit County Council in November 2016, serving on that body since January 2017. My additional duties on the Council have included:
Wife, Shirley; Son, Matt and daughter-in Law, Shannon, grandchildren Morgan (8) and Devin (6); Daughter Carla; Stepson Joseph, grandsons Joe (26) and Miles (11).
