Running forWard 11 School Board
I am a 29-year-old father, husband, and first-generation college graduate that has grown through a life of exposure to a multitude of cultures & environments. I was raised by two loving, blue-collar parents who both devoted 40+ years of their life to the automobile industry. My undergraduate studies are in veterinary technology, and I hold two postgraduate degrees in general management (MSM) and data analytics (MBA). I am an Eagle Scout & former volunteer fireman, with a close regard to the importance of community engagement, enhancement, and devotion. I am currently a business development manager for a CRO based out of New England. My wife Katelyn and I planted our roots here in Manchester back in 2020 so we can build our family. As we we enter our 4th year in the city with our wonderful son, we agree that one major & urgent change is needed to support our city’s growing young family base: enact immediate changes in our schools that will directly impact the educational and social well-being of our most valuable population in Manchester: our students. The future of our great city!
None-- I am not a politician and don't plan to be one. One of my goals, as your school board member, would be to keep politics OUT of decisions in our schools. Politics polarize ones opinions, and draws them away from the core purpose of bettering our schools: the students.
