CURRENT TERM EXPIRES
December 31, 2018

In addition to being an Oxford resident for 24 years, I am an attorney in private practice since 1990, with offices in Oxford and Clinton Township.  My volunteer service to the community consists of:  Cub Scout Den Leader and Assistant Cub Master for 7 years, baseball coach in the Oxford Recreational Baseball Organization for 5 years, football coach in the Oxford Junior Wildcats league for 1 year.  I have served as Vice-President for 1 year and President for 2 years of the Oxford Wildcats Athletic Boosters.  I am the co-director of the Oxford Ski and Snowboard Club for the past 8 years.
My involvement in my children's lives has been rewarding, and now being on the School Board takes that involvement to the next level.  I believe that my education and expertise in law will serve as an advantage to the school board.
I am married to Kathy, and we have three children, Myles, Blake and Jenna.  I also have a small white puffball dog named Lola.  I enjoy snow skiing in the winter and boating in the summer.
