Occupation: Currently unemployed after 21 years with Fidelity Investments. I have recently become certified as a personal trainer.
Education: I graduated with a BA in History from the University of New Hampshire. I played football and baseball as well. After graduating I helped coach the football and baseball teams at Hamilton College before joining the business world.

Favorite quote/mantra? These are my favorite “rules to live by”: Never stop trying to learn and improve yourself; the quality of your life is equal to the quality of your interactions; what you give you receive 10-fold in return. Smile! It’s contagious and it’s free!
What are you passionate about? My kids!! Being a better person today than I was yesterday. Learning and experiencing new things. My goal is to be passionate in every aspect of my life.
What is something you do often that brings you joy? Watching my kids play sports. Biking around the area and exploring places I’ve never been. Yielding for other motorists so they can enter or exit Route 1A. It’s not easy and I always appreciate when someone gives me a break.
Coolest thing I have ever done? Playing in Fenway Park in a college all-star game and hitting a ball over the green monster!
Where would someone see you around town? Biking along the roads, on the sidelines of my kid’s sporting events, shopping at Crosby’s, eating at 15 Walnut, working out at Planet Fitness in Danvers or sitting on my porch playing scrabble.
