As the Manager of Safety Services for ECRM’s Altoona office, I provide specialized risk management services in the areas of OSHA and MSHA training and compliance, behavior based safety development, incident investigation, ergonomic assessments, job safety analysis (JSA), hazardous energy control procedures, machine guarding, supervisor training, and employee development. I graduated from Slippery Rock University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Safety & Environmental Management and hold designations as an accredited MSHA (underground & surface) Instructor & OSHA (construction) Outreach Trainer.
Prior to starting with ECRM, I worked for Fenner Dunlop Conveyor Services as a Regional Safety Coordinator where I was responsible for development of the company’s safety management system in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and Illinois. My experience included responsibilities for employee training, workers’ compensation management, program development, risk analysis and control, drug and alcohol testing program, and employee safety on MSHA and OSHA governed locations.
Outside of work, one of my passions is spending time with my family which includes my wife Lorea, my two sons, Ashton and Aidan, and my daughter, Katieri. As an outdoor enthusiast I love hunting, fishing, camping and riding ATVs. I also enjoy sports and volunteer as a coach for high school, junior high, and varsity football.

If you had to pick one meal to eat every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Where was your most memorable vacation?
When my brother was medically discharged from the military, I went to California to bring him home to surprise my parents. Unfortunately, I had to drive across the country in a single cab Ford Ranger with a stick shift.
