I am a family man elevating my voice to continue to responsibly make Carmel a great place to live, work, and play. I’m a husband, an at-home father of two, and an involved citizen who cares deeply about our city and the people in it.
I grew up in Freeport, NY (on the south shore of Long Island, a town slightly larger than Westfield), with my parents and my younger brother. I come from a family of veterans (my father and my uncles proudly served) and educators. My mom was a teacher and a principal, and my aunts were also teachers. My parents served as wonderful role models and they always emphasized the importance of education, hard-work, and respect for others.
I moved to Carmel in 2014, from the Maryland/Washington/DC area with my wife, Danette, and our son, William III. Two years ago, we welcomed the “Lil Boss” of the family, our daughter, Ava Jane.
I hold a B.S. in Business Administration and an MBA. I have over 20 years of experience in managing government organizations, evaluating and analyzing budgets, and leading performance improvement efforts in the private sector as well as in state and federal government.
Currently, I am a stay at home dad. Like many of you, I am a hard-working Carmel resident. I am also a Democrat, but I am not defined by my politics. I am here to serve the people of Carmel and will passionately and fairly represent the views of conservatives and liberals alike.
Some of my beliefs that are paramount and lacking in our City: Diversity, Transparency, Fiscal Sustainability and being Independent; a Check & Balance.
While my focus is on addressing the above-mentioned issues, I plan to ensure that we continue looking forward with the embrace of innovation, ideas and new perspectives through focusing on local growth & reinvestment, technology upgrades (municipal wireless network), transit (Redline project) and affordable housing.
