I was born and raised in Bloomsburg and graduated from Bloomsburg Senior High School in 1986. In my opinion, the 80's produced some of the best music and of course, we listened to WHLM to get the latest hits. After graduating High School, I went to Pittsburgh where I attended and graduated from the Art institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in Commercial Graphic Design. I worked in the graphic design field for several years before jumping into my first sales gig in high technology. For over 15 years, I worked with several companies including 3-com, Nokia, IBM, Avaya and Cisco. Each opportunity offered a new skill set to further my sales career.
In 2012, I moved back to Bloomsburg to be with my family and return to country living amongst the fine folks of Bloomsburg and the surrounding areas. Upon my return, I first worked in the advertising department of the Press Enterprise before starting my career in Radio advertising with WHLM.
In my personal life, I have had many adventures that have taken me around the world and back. Each experience making me the person I am today. As a kid growing up in Bloomsburg, I was a Boy Scout earning the rank of Eagle Scout. I also found an interest in the Martial Arts as a young lad which has influenced my life greatly. Meeting people from all around the world. My journey has taken me to Japan several times to train with some of the most renowned martial arts masters. In the last 25 years, I have reached the rank of 10th degree blackbelt in Budo-Taijutsu/Ninjutsu, The rank of Shoden in Muso Ikken Ryu Battojutsu (Swordsmanship) and most recently obtained my Instructors license in Personal Protection Measures. A program devised to help everyone and anyone to survive an attack, protect themselves, evade and escape any given situation.
I enjoy composing music, riding motorcycle and videography in my spare time, which there never seems to be enough time for. Since moving back to Bloomsburg, I have rejoined my Scout troop assuming a leadership role. In 2016, I will be leading a 12 day trek in Philmont, New Mexico, a scout ranch in the rugged back mountains reaching elevations of 12,441 feet.
My daughter Ashley, who I adore, admire and love with all my heart is currently following her dreams in Virginia. My Family is everything, there is nothing more important. I am fortunate to be blessed with the best.
