I grew up in Shavertown, PA where I enjoyed playing sports. During high school, I wrestled and played football and baseball. Upon graduating from Dallas High School, I continued my studies at Keystone College earning an associate degree (2003) and a bachelor's degree (2005) while playing baseball.
After college, I moved to Baltimore and taught at Anne Arundel county public schools for 10 years. During my time as a teacher, I taught algebra to kids with special needs. I also coached baseball, football and wrestling.
I began my career at Edward Jones in July 2016 in the Baltimore area before moving to Hagerstown in December 2016. In Hagerstown, I have remained active in the community, currently serving on the board at Valley Little League while coaching and umpiring. I am also an active member at The Elk's Lodge.
