Workout every morning weight trading and cardio exercise. Love running outdoors especially the metro parks . I enjoy nature for example currently several bald eagles sightings.

Love to cook for my family and friends and I enjoy cooking shows on cooking channels.

My wife and I enjoy our theatre district. We attend several plays a year. One of my favorite plays currently would have to be Hamilton!!

What has been your most memorable experience on the job?

I did have a story when I was on Rescue Squad 3.

Lt Dudas, Simmerly, Tom Corcoran and myself.

A thunderstorm rolled in with lots of calls and we were very busy.

We responded to an elderly female electrocuted by her backyard fence. She placed her hand on a chain-linked fence and didn’t see the high voltage line. She was about four to five feet behind her garage calling for help.

I crawled between the back of her garage and electrified fence (a space three feet wide) with a high voltage line dangling over my head to pull her to safety.

On exam, she had a small enter and exit wound through her hand.  She was responsive and transported to the hospital. She reminded me of someone’s grandma.

Loved working the Rescue Squad. Those were some of my best years on CFD!!
