I grew up in Lyman while spending my summers lobstering with my father in Kennebunkport. I graduated from Massabesic High School in 2003. I then took several years off of school to play hockey before attending Southern New Hampshire University. While at SNHU I received a Bachelors degree in Justice Studies and graduated in 2010. In 2009 I started working for the Kennebunkport Police Department as a summer reserve officer. I was hired full time in January of 2011.
