WHO I AM
Being involved in many activities has allowed me to network with many friends that I have been fortunate to unite over the years.
I began Uniting couples in 1980 when I was involved with the Town Committee and back then you had to be sponsored. My sponsor was House of Representative Fred Gelsi. Back in the early years I did only a handful each year. I worked 20 years in the Data Processing field and then was employed by Hallmark Cards for 20 years. However, I did continue to unite couples and through all of the years of working with couples, my love of this part of my life developed into a passion.
It is such a love and such a huge part of my life !!
I am a lifelong Enfield resident, attended St. Adalberts Elementary School in Enfield, The Big K and Enfield High School. Attended Springfield Technical Community College, Asnuntuck Community College and Western New England College.

Have a genuine love of Music that has led me from participating in college and community chorale groups to leading a band in my high school and college years and also a leader of a classic rock band up and into 2000's.
Another part of my life and loves has been in Coaching. I began coaching with my girlfriend Lynn (my wife) and her close friend Marion coaching girls in the Enfield Petticoat Softball League. At the age of 18, I began a 10 year run as head coach with the Enfield Starrs midget football organization.
