What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?

I enjoy being very involved in my community and all things sports. I coach off-season high school basketball and 8th grade in-season basketball. I am also the VP of the Swampscott Youth Football program, Director of Swampscott Flag Football, and I serve on the athletic field advisory committee. As a former Trustee of my Public Library, I got experience with Massachusetts municipal design and construction, and provided guidance on the development of a 30-year masterplan.

A little known fact about me…

When I was a practicing civil engineer, I was involved in Boston’s “Big Dig” project.
