With deep roots in District 38, my family has called the Mon Valley home dating back to before the Civil War.
I live with my wife Molly, son Nico, and two rescue dogs, Rosie and Piper, on the same street that I grew up on, and I am truly honored to represent the district in Harrisburg.
A lifelong resident of the 38th District, I was raised here and graduated from West Mifflin Area High School as class valedictorian. My interest in public policy and community empowerment led me to Washington & Jefferson College to earn bachelor degrees in Accounting and History followed by my time at Johns Hopkins University to earn a master’s degree in Data Analytics & Policy. Integrating business, economics, and government, my background allows me to bring a robust approach to attracting investment, improving infrastructure, and building partnerships across government levels to improve our community.
Prior to my election in 2020, I worked as a certified public accountant and auditor while volunteering as the President of the West Mifflin Community Foundation and as a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh. While President of the Community Foundation, I led the organization as it provided free books to students learning to read, hosted free brunch and bingo events for senior citizens, and organized the efforts to raise funding to convert a local park into a dog park with the assistance of local and corporate donors.
During my time in the state legislature, I've authored bills focused on protecting workers, expanding consumer protections for average Americans, keeping taxes low, expanding opportunities in our schools, investing in infrastructure, and more. At the same time, my district office helps thousands of constituents with their government needs every month. My goal is to serve as the connection between the halls of power in Harrisburg and the local communities in southwestern Pennsylvania that I have the honor to represent.
I'm proud to be from our region and I work every day to ensure the next generation has access to the opportunity and support that has made our communities some of the best places to live in the world.
