  • I grew up in Fairfield CT, although I've lived in Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Florida, only to end up back here in Monroe. My wife Pamela and I moved here in 2012 and fell in love with this town. We were high school sweethearts that found each other again 20 years later, making me a lucky man in more ways than one... I'm now a Step Dad to 4 incredible kids that make me smile every day. I'm truly fortunate to have that kind of love in my life. Monroe is the first town I've felt part of a community. There are great people in this town that have changed my life. They make it easy for me to be involved. I want to keep them smiling and this town special. If possible, make it better.
