Outside of my "real" job, I spend a lot of time supporting organizations that I believe in through whatever means I am able. Whenever possible, I volunteer my time and resources to further help advance these organizations in their goals.
St. John XXIII is a private, Catholic school in Middletown, Ohio that provides an amazing education and environment for children in Preschool through 8th Grade. I've been involved in the school since 2010 in various roles including: soccer coach, track & field coach, marketing committee member, PTO member, fund raiser committee member, euchre tournament chairman, father/daughter dance co-chair, and technology consultant.
As a pack committee member and a den leader with the Boy Scouts, I try to enrich the lives of all the kids in the pack through fun activities that instill good values and teach valuable lessons. I also try to improve the pack as a whole with technological advances and new ideas that weren't possible in the past.

Some of the community events I personally run include bi-monthly pancake breakfasts, annual trunk-or-treat, annual lenton fish frys, annual Kids Christmas party, annual soccer challenge, and annual free throw competitions. I also work with other members of the council to keep us up to date technology and constantly work to move the council to digital solutions.
