I grew up with my family in Suffield and graduated from Suffield High School. I first participated in the Suffield Police summer youth academy before joining the Suffield Police Explorer’s. I volunteered as an Enfield Auxiliary Officer while I earned my bachelor degree in Criminology and Business at Central Connecticut State University. I recently graduated from the University of Hartford with a master’s degree in Business Administration. I have a diverse work background, including, working tobacco at Christian Farms in Suffield, bank teller, construction laborer and corporate security. I became a police officer at the Simsbury Police Department in 2008 and have been a detective for the last couple years. I enjoy spending my free time with my wife, Danielle, and our adopted Fidelco German Shepherd dog. My wife and I enjoy traveling and staying healthy with outdoor adventures. As a police commissioner, I would be an asset since I understand the Town of Suffield, have a strong knowledge about current policing and recognize the necessary improvements. Within the fiscal constraints of the town, I would advocate for many improvements, such as: earning state/nation accreditation, increased training, increased morale, restoring public trust and transparency with the citizens. I am committed to advancing every aspect of the Suffield Police Department for the citizens of Suffield and police personnel.
