I grew up in Dublin, Ireland moving to California in 1988 shortly after finishing High School. After graduating from
California State University with a degree in Finance, I spent the majority of my career in telecommunications at Hewlett- Packard and later as an administrator in higher education— George Washington, UC Davis, and Marquette.
I was raised Roman Catholic and toward the end of college became an evangelical Christian committing his life to Jesus as Lord and Savior. I spent several years in California as a leader in Bible Study Fellowship and the Chair of the Missions Department of Hessel Bible Church. At Rock Creek Church in Maryland, an Evangelical Free Church, I served on the Board of Elders and my wife, Amanda, and I embraced life together with fellow believers in Life Group. I partially completed an M.Div at Fuller Theological Seminary and also served as a civilian in the United States Air Force Auxiliary Chaplaincy.
I enjoy golf and aviation. Amanda enjoys gardening and music. We live in Mequon and have four
children, two of whom are now married. We also have one granddaughter. Jack and Tucker, their Golden Retriever and American Brittany round out the now empty nest. We recently celebrated twenty-five years of marriage.
