I was born and raised in Akron and have been a resident of Norton since 1983. My wife and I raised two children in Norton and are the proud grandparents of six. Our daughter and son-in-law continue to live in Norton and are raising their six children here. I have been blessed to serve my community through my love of sports by coaching soccer and basketball, serving on the Norton Amateur Soccer Board and Panther Parents Board. I also co-chaired a Norton City Schools Levy committee. I am currently a Business Development Manager at Advantage Solutions and co-owner of an LLC home remodeling business. My hobbies include running, gardening and entertaining my grandchildren.
