My wife and I moved to Vermont twelve years ago. We met serving in the United
States Peace Corps as volunteers in Morocco. I attended UVM to get a degree
in Public Administration, and my wife went to Vermont Law School.
I’ve worked as a town administrator and official for many communities across
Vermont. I’ve worked for Pomfret, Calais, and Essex Junction. I lived and
served as the Planning Commission Chair in Marshfield for several years. I now
serve as the Barre City CVFiber representative. I worked for years as a
municipal advocate for the Vermont League of Cities and Towns (VLCT). At VLCT
I represented Vermont communities on issues like transportation and public
safety. I helped write legislation during that time.
Governor Shumlin appointed me to the Vermont Communications Board. I have
also served on the Board of Directors at Twin Valley Senior Center. In
addition, I helped found the Vermont Highway Safety Alliance.
For the last four years I have worked at the Vermont Foodbank, located in
Barre. The Vermont Foodbank partners with hundreds of nonprofits to
distribute food and supplies. This includes a dozen or so nonprofits right
here in Barre. It also operates food distribution programs at places like
schools and hospitals.
