What high school/college did you attend, and what did you study?

Delran High School/ College Prep Classes

What community organizations do you spend time on/with?

Delran Fire Department Station 231.

What single characteristic do you feel every leader should possess?

Honesty.

What is your most fulfilling professional experience or accomplishment?

The fulfilling part of my professional life is being able to help and serve the people of Burlington County working for the county 911 system.

What one person, living or dead, would you want to spend a day with and why?

Governor Christie. I would want to tell him enough is enough, it is time to stop blaming all the public employees for the problems of the State of NJ. It is time to put the blame where it is suppose to be, on the politicians that have created this problem, and not the hard working police officers, firefighters, EMS, dispatchers, and the teachers. The people who risk their lives everyday and that are responsible for teaching the children who are our future. It's time to really look at the problems that surround us everyday and how things are so backwards. How people who play sports are making millions of dollars and the people that are responsible for teaching are children and protecting us from the bad things in the world are making next to nothing and we keep trying to take more from them.

Tell us something that most people don’t know about you.

I love the beach but hate the ocean.

Advice for future community leaders?

Always be honest and do the things that you promise you are going to do. Always remember no one does anything on their own, there is always someone there backing them up and helping along the way. Use these people and make sure that you give credit where credit is do and when something fails don't try to blame someone else for the failure.

Tell us your own personal mission statement.

To always finish everything that I start and to do everything to the best of my ability.

Fiction or non-fiction? Why?

Fiction. With fiction you can do and be anything that you ever wanted at least for a little while.

If there was a movie being produced about you, what would the title be?

"9-1-1: You Can't Make This Stuff Up"

Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

Still married to my beautiful awesome wife. A couple of kids and still living the dream.
