About me

Work ethic/commitment

I have always been one to be proactive and pursuing additional responsibility in my professional career. When I commit to something I give it 100% and that is what I intend to do for EG Schools.


I was born in Providence, RI and have 1 older brother who works in management. I attended Providence public schools through high school, graduating from Classical High School in the year 2000. I grew up in a single-family home with my mom raising my brother and I, working multiple jobs, her full-time job being a math para-professional at the Community College of Rhode Island. She was vice president of the teacher’s union for a period of time and was passionate about ensuring teachers got what they deserved. My mother worked hard and always made sure my brother and I had what we needed. I’m grateful I was given her work ethic and dedication. I attended URI for 1 year before changing majors to Finance. I attended CCRI for 2 years obtaining my Associates Degree and transferred to Bryant University, graduating in 2005 with a degree in Financial Services and Minor in Economics. I’ve worked in the Financial Industry ever since. Through my company we still work closely with Bryant through class sponsorships, speaking events and recruiting.

Professional Experience

I’ve worked in the Investment Industry in various roles, for the same company, for the past 16 years. I am not a money manager. I’m currently an Executive at a large financial institution where I manage an organization of over 40 associates who design, develop and execute new hire training for over 3500 investment advisors across the country. I'm responsible for an annual learning budget of $2M+. This requires me to prioritize spending and to ensure there is accountability and a positive return on investments for that money spent. Over the years I have managed teams of registered advisors, worked on large initiatives designing new teams and processes for industry wide regulatory changes. My experience over the years has taught me the importance of planning for all risks, looking at all options and being creative with limited resources. Most importantly, my experience has taught me the value of transparency. Being transparent and laying out all options for parents and the overall EG community will be one of my top priorities if elected. You can see further about my career on Linkdin.


There is nothing I love more than spending time with my family. My wife Kristine and I have been married for 7 years. Kristine grew up in Brooklyn and moved to RI over 10 years ago. We moved to East Greenwich in the summer of 2018.

We have a son, Saxon who is 5. I have another son, Logan who 12 and is a rising 7th grader at Cole Middle School. We love spending time riding bikes, taking hikes at one of EGs trails and really anything active. I had the honor of coaching Saxon’s Tee Ball team this year in the EGLL. If it’s a nice day outside on the weekend you will most likely find us working outside in the yard. I also enjoy running (beep if you see me on the hill on Middle Rd in the early morning!) and golfing the 1-2 times a year I’m able to get out.

What has Motivated Me

We moved to EG, like many families for the schools. Over the past 4 years I have seen the academic performance in our lower-level schools' trend downward. When I started working from home during COVID I was able to dedicate more time to attend School Committee meetings to see what was happening. I have formed opinions over the past year of attending school committee meetings that things can be improved. There is A LOT of money that EG taxpayers provide to the schools and you as taxpayers and parents should have insight into where that money goes and if the programs we are spending money on are successful!

1. Accountability and goals are key to improvement – I would ensure all initiatives that are tied to the School Strategic Plan have short-mid- and long-term goals associated with them. Ensure there are owners for each of these initiatives to create clear accountability for success. Quarterly updates on these initiatives would be provided to show progress and if any remediation is needed.

2. Partner with Parents to make it easy to participate- We would find creative, summarized ways to ensure parents can be included on important topics, meetings and communications. The School Committee should be working around the parent’s schedule, not the other way around.

Please support me

I humbly ask for your support in November. East Greenwich Schools deserve the best leadership we have to offer.

Parents, teachers and community members should all have a voice and view into what goes on in our schools. I will ensure our taxpayers are getting value out of their dollars and know what is working and what’s not in our schools!

Please do not hesitate to contact me via email, phone, text or FB.

I look forward to your support!
