I have been a boater for 43 years.  I owned a 20' speed boat, in which I raised my four children on for twenty years.   I have worked in service shops since 1976.

I came to Fox Chapel Marine, hired as Service Manager, in June of 2018.  I take pride on helping out our customers no matter how big or small the work is.  You may also see me in the shop or on the docks helping out our technicians on repairs. 

In my spare time, I like to restore boats.

Boating has been an important part of my life since 1962 when my Dad started his marina along the Allegheny River. Growing up in a marina has given me a lifelong appreciation of the pleasures and enjoyment boating brings to those who live and love the boating life. Fishing, pleasure boating, waterskiing, tubing, camping, boat racing and spending every possible minute on the river has been some of the greatest times of my life.

Over the years, I've done almost every job there is in a marina from swinging docks and pumping gas to washing boat bottoms and managing a service department.

I joined Fox Chapel in 2006 as the Parts Manager and I've enjoyed the opportunity to spend every day working with people who love boating. I love my work because it's true; boaters are some the best people in the world!

I have been working at Fox Chapel Marine since 2012. During this time I have learned a lot about the boating industry especially regarding boat service. I enjoy meeting new boaters as well as seeing our regulars. The professional yet comfortable setting here makes it a great place to work.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my children Abigail and David. We love to go camping, fishing, and swimming as much as we can. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania and can't imagine a better place to live, work and raise a family!
