I started attending St. Joseph's with my wife Andrea Dale before we were married. I was immediately drawn in by the warmth of the parish and the high calibre, thought provoking sermons delivered on Sundays. A year later, I joined that year's RCIA class run by Joe Brown and had a wonderful time learning more about our Church and Catholic traditions. I was confirmed by Fr. McGuire and then married by him as well, so I feel a deep connection with St. Joseph's that I look forward to enjoying the rest of my life.
I have spent many years as part of the Executive Committee for Operation Smile, which performs operations on children with cleft palates in third world countries. More recently, I have become involved with Mary's Meals which is a charity that feeds children in third world countries a nutritious meal a day at their place of education, in an effort to help end the cycle of poverty.
I graduated University of Pennsylvania in 1998. I was born and raised in New York City, currently work at Highbridge Principal Strategies, and reside in Manhattan. I have served on the Pastoral Council for the past year and would welcome the opportunity to continue serving our Parish.
