Attended Lock Haven University and graduated with a Bachelors in Recreation Management. Was employed by Beacon Light Behavorial Health Systems.

Married Melanie Korman of Bellwood, PA, and have 2 kids, Taylor Marie and Arik.

Moved to Shippensburg and Chambersburg, and continued in the Behavioral Health and Mental Health fields working with children and adults. Moved to the Altoona area and built a house on a mountain with a partial view of the city located in the Bellwood-Antis School District.

Was employed by the Tyrone YMCA as a Recreational Program Director and also by Penn State University.

Decided to do my own thing and spend some time working in a field I enjoy ... landscaping, lawn care, and property maintenance.

Assisted a friend in starting two businesses involving decorative concrete resurfacing and renovating housing properties.

I am now a Service Coordinator for an agency based out of Erie that advocates for adults with physical disabilities. We are one of the largest in the nation, and cover nearly the entire state of Pennsylvania. And the expansion continues.

Also, I continue to dabble in the local AM talk radio scene on WRTA (we have a website, chatroom, and streaming audio) as time permits dealing mainly with local, state, and national politics.
