I am a lifelong resident of the Doylestown area and a 1996 graduate of Chippewa High School. My wife (Kelli) and I have three daughters, two of which attend Chippewa Local Schools and the other who attends Miller South School for the Visual and Performing Arts.
Prior to pursuing a career in law enforcement, I was employed by Doylestown Communications and attended college. In 2001, I graduated from The University of Akron with a Bachelor of Science in Education degree with a concentration in Exercise Science/Strength and Conditioning/Coaching.
In September of 2004 (after attending the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy), I was hired by the Doylestown Police Dept. as a full time patrolman. In 2013, I was promoted to Sergeant and in 2016 I was promoted to Lieutenant. I am a graduate of the Supervisor Training and Education Program (STEP). I currently serve as our agency's Firearms Instructor and one of our First Aid/CPR/AED Instructors. I also volunteer with the US Marshal-Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force.
