I joined the fire service at the age of 16. I have been involved for 24 years as both a paid and volunteer professional. I have served as Deputy Chief, Assistant Chief, Captain and Lieutenant of my previous fire departments. I am a people person and enjoy giving back to my community. I have a deep desire to help as many people as I can. I am married to my wife Donna of 17 years. Most of my family has been involved in the fire service in some way shape or form. I am currently a member of Valmead Fire-Rescue which I serve in the capacity of Lieutenant. Currently enrolled at AIU going for my bachelors degreee in helathcare management will graduate in July 2011.
