I am a stay-at-home Dad and community volunteer with a business and consulting background. I believe in giving back and paying it forward. My passions are leadership, community, and youth. My wife (Jen) and I have 2 sons, Ned (rising 6th grader at SRMS) and Eric (rising 4th grader at Horizon Elementary School). I am currently President of the Horizon Elementary School PTA (2nd year; former Senior Vice President of Educational Programs for 1 year; former Treasurer for 2 years). I volunteer in both classrooms each week (6th year). I am the Assistant Coach (6th year) of the Dominion High School Varsity Swim Team. In January, I was appointed as the Algonkian District Representative to the Loudoun County Joint Board of Supervisors and School Board Standing Committee Citizen Volunteer Work Group.
Amy Curran and I have worked very well together on the Horizon Elementary School PTA for 6 years. We look forward to serving as Co-Presidents of the SRMS PTO. We will lead a partnership among Thunderbolts parents, teachers, administrators, & staff, and students. We seek to complement and supplement the education of our children through SRMS PTO programs, activities, and events that enhance school spirit and sense of community; support teaching and learning; go above and beyond the 3Rs of Reading, (W)Riting, and (A)Rithmetic --> Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Art, Music, Physical Education, Character Education, life skills, etc. We will focus on the benefits and value of joining, volunteering, and participating. We will bring experience, ideas, input, energy, and enthusiasm, and a strong network in the Dominion Cluster (Horizon, Lowes Island, Meadowland, and Sugarland Elementary Schools; SRMS; DHS) and Loudoun community. We look forward to making SRMS PTO, SRMS, and community impact.
