I'm so fortunate to live in Seven Hills with my wife of 29 years, Natalie, and two grown children, Leah and Noah. I've been a resident of Seven Hills for 38 years, attending Col. John Glenn and Hillside schools. I was one of the five streets in Seven Hills that attended Parma Sr. At Baldwin-Wallace University, I trained as a science teacher and was an educator for 28 years before switching careers to my present position as Park and Building Supervisor for the City of Seven Hills. The job I always wanted after teaching.
In the past I have been a Catholic Youth Organization coach for baseball, football, and wrestling. I have also coached for the Seven Hills Baseball Federation and Normandy HS's Fall fastpitch team. Within the SHBF, I was Director of Umpires for 13 years. I have been a staff member for various fundraisers at St. Columbkille for the Church and affiliated organizations like St. Columbkille School and Athletic Boosters. In the past I taught 8th grade PSR at the church. Being a hobbyist woodworker, I donated wood crafted hobby horses to Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital's fundraising auction.
I currently am a lector, substitute eucharistic minister, and adoration chapel attendant at St. Columbkille.
I am happy to be part of all the improvements taking place in our wonderful city, especially those in the park system. Our city is going in the right direction and I get great satisfaction when people use our Recreation Center and park facilities. The people I get to see and even talk with at the Rec and in the parks when I am out and about doing park chores makes my day as I see how many other citizens (and their pets) love this city as much as I do.
