2012 Candidate profiles


“I grew up one of 13 children in a home where education was emphasized. My father was a school teacher and coach who later became a university professor. By foregoing vacations, new cars, and  dining out, my parents guaranteed each of us could go to any college to which we were admitted. This also meant saving our money from all summer jobs we worked.

“I graduated from Notre Dame with a B.A. in government and international studies in 1985. After working for a year, I attended IU-Bloomington Law School, and graduated with honors in 1989. For nearly 20 years, I worked and became a partner at one of the largest law firms in the state. For four years, I served on the management committee of that firm, being responsible for all aspects of running the firm, including budgeting, hiring, performance measurement, and training.

“Education, and the sacrifice it took to get it, were keys to opportunities for my family and me. Over eight years ago, when my wife Pam and I were looking to establish our home, we chose Avon, in large part because of the excellent schools. Our oldest daughter graduated from Avon High School this past May and is a freshman at IU. We have a daughter who is currently a junior at Avon and a son in second grade at Hickory. Our youngest will start kindergarten at Hickory next year. We have been impressed with the quality of teachers we have encountered, as well as the opportunities for students to grow and develop.

“Please help me bring the community together to overcome the challenges facing our schools, so our community can thrive, our schools can excel, and our children can flourish.”

I am the current Region 7 director for Indiana School Boards Association (ISBA) and have also served on both the Legislative and Nominating Committees. In 2007, I earned a Master Board Member designation.
