Our family is proud to call Livonia home! Katie and I are the parents of four great kids and are dedicated to being involved in their schools and activities.

During my service on the City Council, I am most proud to have initiated Livonia’s Neighborhood Grant Program that has funded many community activities that engage Livonia residents to be a better place.

I also am fortunate to volunteer with/or belong to the following great organizations: Livonia Goodfellows, Livonia Bar Association, Knights of Columbus -Thomas Dooley, St. Colette Catholic Church, Seedlings Braille Books for Children and Livonia Civic Chorus.
