I'm a proud 32nd Degree Freemason. I'm a Husband & Father. I have a Bachelors of Science in International Business & Finance from New York University. I also have a minor in Politics.
In 1996-1997 I was a US House of Representatives Page. In 2001 I was a Summer Analyst at Enron Energy Services. On September 11, 2001 I was 2 miles away from Ground Zero in Manhattan. All of this led me to move out to the Rust Belt with my family after College. I became a Semi-Truck Driver and saw much of Main Street firsthand. I did get my Series 7 and was a Financial Advisor for a year. That didn't pan out and I have been in Foodservice Distribution ever since. Between my education and life experiences, I feel the need to express insights. I find solace in putting my thoughts out into the public sphere.
The Portland Valley Scottish Rite, which I'm a member, has the following motto: Human progress is our cause, liberty of thought our supreme wish, freedom of conscience our mission, and the guarantee of equal rights to all people everywhere our ultimate goal. I fully subscribe to this ideology. I'm attempting, in some way, to be a better Man and make the world around me a better place.
