About me

I have resided in Northeast Ohio for my entire life and yet still believe that the Browns, Indians and/or Cavs will win a championship in my lifetime. Great place to raise a family. Have been active in my community serving on Twinsburg Ohio Planning Commission and former Chairman of the Aurora Ohio Architectural Board of Review.


 


I currently serve as volunteer mediator for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.


 


I also serve as a volunteer for the Cuyahoga Metroplitan Bar Association 3 R's Program tutoring high school students in Cleveland regarding consttutional rights, responsibilities and realities.
