Professional Summary

I have more than 20 years’ experience in various capacities as an HR professional including 13 years as HR Director for two manufacturing facilities in modular home building where I concentrated on succession planning, performance evaluations, recruiting/retentions, policy creation/compliance, handbook creation, employee relations, OSHA, Workers’ Compensation, benefits administration, job descriptions and much more. Prior to that I was an HR Manager for a warehouse distribution center for about 10 years. I hold an Associate’s Degree in Business Management from PA College of Technology in Williamsport PA.

About Me

I have been married for over 21 years to my wife Tara and I am also a father to three amazing sons (Noah, Ryan, and Aidan), a cat (Toby), and my Golden Retriever Samantha (a.k.a. Sami).  I love spending time with my family going on mini-vacations, or just chilling at home with Netflix.  I love watching my sons play soccer and their involvement in the theater programs.  I am an avid football fan and cheer for Penn State on Saturdays and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sundays, plus a 3X champ at Fantasy Football! I also enjoy doing lawn work, tinkering around the house, weather watching, hanging out with friends, watching terrifying horror movies, and listening to music.

Favorite Quote

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”  I Corinthians 13:4-8

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

I would have to go with Chicago steak (medium) from BJ’s Ribs ,with a sides of garlic mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli.

Where was your most memorable vacation?

I love going down to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to visit my parents.  The best trip we had was in late April a few years ago. We encountered a tornado at South of the Boarder, I got to visit the KISS cafe, we spent a day at the ocean, went to the aquarium, enjoyed an amazing Mexican dinner, had a small cabin in a camping resort two blocks from the ocean, and of course, got to visit my parents.
