Biographical Info

I was born in Portland, and grew up in the Boothbay Region, graduating from Boothbay Region High School in 1991, and the University of Maine in 1996, with a degree in Business Administration. After working in several positions (including substitute teacher) I went to work as an accounting assistant at Inland Seafood in Boothbay in 1999. I was hired as a cost accountant at Hardwood Products Company in Guilford, Maine in 2000, where I have been ever since.

I have been in the Order for 14+ years, joining Father John Sullivan Council 10356 in Boothbay Harbor, where I served as Financial Secretary. I have been a Fourth Degree member since 1999. I served as Deputy Grand Knight and Grand Knight for Father Patrick Hayes Council 3172 in Dover-Foxcroft, and currently serve as council Warden for St. Agnes Councill 4861 in Pittsfield. I also currently serve as Faithful Navigator for St. Agnes Assembly 354 in Pittsfield.

I have served as a District Deputy for a total of six years under four State Deputies. I served four years as Family Life Activies Director from 2008-2012. I have also served on the Kennebec Valley Major Degree Team since 2000, and the Maine District Fourth Degree Team since 2007. In 2012 at the 117th Annual State Convention, I was elected State Warden. I can’t wait to get started in working for you.

I have been married to my lovely wife Joanna for five years, and enjoy sharing my life as a Knight with her. We are members of St. Agnes Parish in Pittsfield, where we served as faith formation teachers the past three years. I have also been a lector and enjoy sharing the Word of God with others.
