Biographical Info:

I believe that serving others is the greatest thing a person can do, and I am very fortunate to be able to serve others by working at Catholic Charities. I have been with Catholic Charities for 16 years and work with our wonderful staff coordinating programs for adults and teens with developmental disabilities, autism, mental health, and substance abuse needs. I have worked with children and adults with various levels of needs and abilities for over 35 years.

Prior to coming to Catholic Charities, I started working in the Milwaukee Public School system special education programs at age 17, including working in the inner city for many years. I repaired Y2K bugs as a computer programmer for 2 years, developed websites as a graphic designer for 2 years, and taught at Chileda for 5 years.

I am the father of 3 amazing adult children with whom I share the importance of treating others with dignity and fostering their desire to help others. Each of them has in turn worked with individuals with special needs. One of the best things about working at Catholic Charities is the great people I have the fortune to meet on a daily basis. We all learn from each other in the hopes of making each other’s lives a little bit better.
