I have spent my entire life in Bethel and attended Whitcomb High School and the University of Vermont. I have worked in the family business, Valley Motor Sales Inc, since my childhood years. I developed a love for the game of basketball as a player and that has led to a lifelong dedication to local basketball including town teams, summer leagues, and coaching.
