I was born and raised on Long Island, NY, and attended several boarding schools in New England from Middle School through High School, and graduated from Proctor Academy. This robust educational experience provided me with the opportunity to learn in an independent, diverse environment with other children from around the United States, and the world. After graduation, I attended Eckerd College where I majored in History with a minor in Management. This is also where I was fortunate enough to meet my wife, Becky. After graduation, I began my career in Human Resource Management where the ability to listen to people’s concerns, form consensus, and make sound decisions was a primary job requirement.
I moved to Bucks County, PA in 1997 to continue my Human Resources career. In 1999, I went back to school for Architecture at Philadelphia University, which is now known as Jefferson University. I graduated with a 5-year Architecture degree and began a new career in architecture, as I was always interested in materials and how they can combine into assemblies. My wife and I were married in 2000, and we moved to Ivyland in 2007 to be part of the highly acclaimed Council Rock School District. We have 3 children, two are currently attending Council Rock schools. The oldest graduated from Council Rock South High School this past spring and is now away at college. He is doing well after advancing through CRSD.
As a professionally licensed Architect in NJ and PA, I manage my own firm, Synergy Architects, which is based in Langhorne, PA. Architecture requires the ability to present a clear vision to clients and solve unique problems, which I enjoy.
I am committed to improving the quality of education in Northampton and the Council Rock School District. My children and their classmates deserve the best education we can deliver. I have direct experience and exposure to a variety of educational systems and operating models. I will wholeheartedly bring my leadership, listening, and problem-solving skills to the role of School Director.
