I was raised in East Brunswick, NJ attending an Episcopal church with my family. In my early adult life, my younger brother, who I mentored at work, was killed in a motorcycle accident in 1986. This ultimately drew me away from God. I had some tough times going down the wrong roads until I met my wife in 1987. Looking back, God knew I needed someone to help me find my way back. In 2006, my wife and I found ourselves in a bible church that was hosting Financial Peace University classes, and through this church we both were baptized in 2008. We started attending Grace Bible Church in 2010 and right away we connected by joining ministries and a small group. As a Deacon here at Grace my main focus is mechanical maintenance. I enjoy time with my wife of 32 years, our 3 adult children, photography and the beach.
