I am a native of the Pittsburgh area and grew up in the West End section of the city. I moved around the country on business for nearly 30 years, but in 2002 my wife Barb and I decided to move back to Pittsburgh and we chose to settle in Collier Township and we have enjoyed every minute of life here. In 2004, I started my own sign company and located the business in The Great Southern Shopping Center. Being a resident and a businessman in Collier Township has provided many rewarding experiences. I currently serve on the Graphic Design Board at Pittsburgh Technical Institute (PTI) and also serve as the Treasurer on the Board of Directors for the South West Communities Chamber of Commerce.Prior to being appointed to the Board of Commissioners, I served on the Township Planning Commission. I enjoy the challenges and the opportunities that the Commissioners role provides and I look forward to helping to make Collier Township the most desirable and enjoyable place to live, work and recreate.
