I have been in the fire service for nearly 28 years. I was named Chief of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department in 1999 and was instrumental in the formation of the joint fire district which serves the residents of Green and Wayne Townships and the Village of Smithville. I am a member of many fire service associations. I earned the Fire Officer designation from Cuyahoga Community College and was awarded the Ohio Fire Chief Officer credential in 2016.
I live in the Village of Smithville with my wife and three children. I enjoy coaching youth sports, attending Smithies sporting events and outdoor activities. I am a member of Parkview Christian Church.
