President of the Northwest Michigan Peer Network
"I started my fire career as a explorer with the CDF (now known as Cal-Fire). When we moved to northern Michigan, I continued that passion with a fire explorer post out of a small town called McBain. I joined the paid on call roster in 2004, and have been doing it every sense. In 2018, I became a fulltime firefighter with Paradise Emergency Services out of Grand Traverse County. In 2021, I made a career switch to Peninsula Township Fire Department, where I current work. I am a father of three girls, and stay very active with them. We do a lot of things together, and love to fish and boat. I have a strong passion for helping my fellow first responders and will help anyway that I can."
