Occupation:  I am a CT BEST Certified Social Studies Teacher who has taught Social Studies in Bridgeport and in Stamford; I have also spent time as a substitute teacher in Wilton at MIddlebrook and Wilton High School. In addition, I am a professional actor, having performed on Broadway, on television, and in numerous plays.

Background info:  I grew up here in Wilton, attending Wilton Public Schools from Kindergarten right through Wilton High School.  My parents still live here in town.  Growing up, my mom was always involved in town government and local issues as a member of the Republican Town Committee.  It is a pleasure and an honor to serve my mometown.  

I am proud to raise my family here; my wife Deb and I have a two-year-old and a six-month-old.  I have served on the Water Pollution Control Authority Board, the Wilton Library Board of Trustees, as Chair of the Democratic Town Committee, and as your selectman since 2007.  

I have served as the Democratic State Central Committee Representative for the 26th District since 2008. I am humbled and honored to be running this fall with talented, dedicated candidates on both sides of the aisle. We need creative, open-minded individuals who are willing to work together, and who are not stuck in a political ideology moving forward. That is where I stand.

A nice guy, but during his current term he primarily distinguished himself as a bobble-head for Bill Brennan.No leadership qualities to speak of. Why elect any socialist democrat when he/she will only seek to enable the Obama agenda at local levels?
