I have lived in Stow for almost 46 years and graduated from Stow-Munroe Falls High School in 1976. I am also a 1980 graduate of Kent State University with a bachelor’s degree in transportation and logistics management. I retired from BP Oil Company after 27 years in 2009 and am currently employed as a director of carrier management with the Kenan Advantage Group.

My wife, Val, who is a former SMF district teacher, and I are proud parents of two SMFHS graduates. I have always volunteered in SMF schools and participated in district related organizations including the Athletic Booster Club where I served as an officer from 2009-2011.

I have a tremendous passion for this school district and our community. I am very proud of the education that our students receive and the excellent work of our classified, certified and administrative staff. I will work hard to ensure every child in our District has the opportunity to receive an excellent education that will prepare them for the future.

I graduated from Kent State University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and continued my education at Baldwin-Wallace College where I earned an MBA. Retiring from Ford Motor Company after 35 years as a cost analyst, I am currently on special assignment with Ford as lead analyst.

My wife, Kathy, and I have lived in the Stow community for 27 years. During that time, we raised two sons, both graduates of Stow-Munroe Falls High School. Our eldest is also a graduate of The University of Akron, and our youngest is currently attending Stark State College.

Over the years, I have remained active with the schools and community in many capacities. I have served as treasurer in the Kimpton and SMFHS PTSAs, as well as Band Parents. I am also a member of the Athletic Boosters. I have been active in the Boy Scouts of America organization for many years and am proud that both of my sons have attained the rank of Eagle Scout.

Serving my first term on the School Board, I hope to promote a level of honesty and community trust. I know there will be many challenges, but student welfare and fiscal responsibility will always be my priorities in making decisions.
