About Michael...

I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to Hunterdon County from Middlesex County in 1998. I eventually moved to East Amwell in 2005 because of the great school and rural character of the community.  My wife, Michelle, and I have two children whom both attend the East Amwell School.  I earn a living as a Police Officer and Michelle is a Nurse Practitioner at Hunterdon Medical Center.  I recently retired from the Raritan Township Police Department after 26 years of service.  I currently work as a school resource officer with the Hunterdon County Sheriff’s Department where I am assigned to a local high school.  I believe in serving the community and we are raising our children to value community service as well.  Prior to being elected to this committee, I had served as East Amwell’s representative to the Hunterdon Central Regional High School Board of Education, as well as a Board Member for South County Soccer.  What I enjoy most is coaching our children in the various sports they play including football, basketball and soccer.  I feel very fortunate to have an opportunity to contribute to the overall development of our student athletes as I believe sports teaches more than athletic skills.  In our free time, our family enjoys traveling in our RV and spending time at our family beach house at the Jersey Shore.  It is an honor to serve this community and I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
