I am a graduate of UMASS/Lowell with a BA in English, Northeastern University with a MEd in counseling and Fitchburg State University with a MEd in educational leadership.
An elementary school teacher for 8 years and then a middle school teacher for 10 years, I embarked on a career as an elementary school principal for 20 years. During all those years I worked for several excellent school systems; concluding my 38 years as a public school educator as a principal in the Sudbury Public Schools.
After retiring from public education in 2008 I began a career in real estate when I joined BHHS N.E. Prime Properties later in the same year.
A father of two married children and the grandfather of four, I've lived in Berlin MA with my partner since 2004. A love of gardening, photography, literature, theatre, music, and travel are among my avocations and I am always planning for the next book, play, or travel destination.
A believer in giving back to my community when possible, I have been a member of the Berlin Boylston Regional School Committee since appointment in early 2015 and served as Chair from May 2017 to January 2020.
