Nether Providence Board of Commissioners, Ward 5


This fall I’m running to be your representative on the Nether Providence Township Board of Commissioners. I’m writing to introduce myself and ask that you vote in the May 21 primary election.

I’ve met many of you at community events, and while knocking on doors. But I haven’t yet met all of you, and many of you don’t yet know me. I’m a 2003 Strath Haven graduate and life-long Township resident. At Strath Haven I was a two-time Delco Player of the Year in soccer, and I went on to graduate from Virginia Tech where I was the captain of the men’s soccer team that went to the NCAA Final Four. My wife, Jessica, and I have four children and have lived on Cedar Road for over nine years. I am a professional youth soccer coach and work with the Philadelphia Union Academy program as well as other youth clubs. I also run my own small business: Future Captains Sports.

My life has always been driven by helping others succeed. That is the mission of my company, and that is what I do on daily basis when I work with youth. I enjoy helping others reach their full potential and to set and accomplish their goals. I also strive to create a positive environment for all of the individuals I work with, and that is what I also look to do within our community. I was the director of the Township Recreation camp for several years, and I have been involved with NPAA as a player, as a coach, and now as a parent. Maintaining and improving the quality of these sorts of programs for our youth would be an important priority of mine if elected, and I also want to continue the Township’s recent focus on improving our parks, traffic calming, and pedestrian safety.

I enjoy looking for ways to improve our community and urge you to reach out to me with any you may have. In 2018, the Democrats gained a majority on the Nether Providence Board of Commissioners, and with that, gained the ability to drive long-term goals. I am looking to continue that momentum, to keep our community safe, and to find ways to improve our parks and other facilities. Finally, I want to make sure our township continues to be a desirable and inclusive place to live and raise a family.

In the coming months, you’ll see me and my family out in the community, knocking on doors, and talking about our long term vision for Nether Providence. I look forward to the opportunity to meet all of you and hear your thoughts and ideas about ways to keep our township headed in the right direction.
