I was born in Rhode Island and attended Christian schools kindergarten through high school. After graduating from the Univ. of Massachusetts, I worked for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers Baseball organizations in advertising sales and business operations, which led me to Vero Beach during Spring Training season. I eventually found my way back to Rhode Island to serve as Director of Athletics at St. Raphael Academy, a De La Salle prep high school, and taught in the school’s Theology and Social Studies departments for ten years.
I am married to Carrie, a Florida native, who does not share my appreciation for long, cold New England winters. This led to our relocation to Vero Beach where we continued our teaching careers and where we love our three children, Juliana (5), and two-year-old twin boys Andrew and Owen.
One of my favorite Scriptures is Jeremiah 29:11, “ ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ ” For me, this Scripture serves as a reminder that even during life’s most difficult trials, God gives us hope that things will improve as we look to Him for guidance.
