I am proud to say that I grew up in the Suffield Community, and now have the opportunity to raise my three children in the same manner. Starting at a young age I had a passion for the fire service. I joined the Suffield Fire Department’s Cadet Program at the age of 14, and remained active until graduating High School. At that time I enlisted in the Connecticut Air National Guard where I served for 12 years as a Firefighter. During that time I was deployed to Saudi Arabia in support of Operation Southern Watch.
For the past 19 years I have served as a career firefighter at Bradley Airport Fire Department. I enjoy community service and raising money for those in need with my fellow bothers at the Masonic Lodge 28. I currently hold my Paramedic License for the State of Connecticut.
I feel my background and passion for fire service will help the Fire Department Management, Volunteers, and Career Staff receive the tools necessary to keep our residents safe. I welcome the privilege to continue to serve on the Fire Commission.
