What do you enjoy most about Greater Hartford?
I've been a Greater Hartford resident for almost my entire life - I grew up in Suffield and East Granby, later resided in Simsbury and Hartford, and now am a proud resident of Windsor. What strikes me most is the sense of community in our region - we are always stepping up to help others and create a welcoming space for all.

What quote best represents your personal philosophy?
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'" -Fred Rogers

Are you involved in any volunteer activities?
I serve as a volunteer Crisis Counselor with Crisis Text Line and I am on the scholarship selection committee for the American Savings Foundation. I have previous volunteer experience with NARAL CT and proudly support other nonprofits whenever I get the opportunity.
