Superintendent Letterhead

It is with Palmyra Pride that I have been serving this active and supportive community as the Superintendent of Schools since July 1, 2012. Prior to Palmyra, I was the Superintendent of New Hanover School District in Wrightstown, NJ (2009-2012) and the Director of Adult Basic Skills at Salem County Vocational Technical School in Woodstown, NJ (2008-2009). In addition to my administrative experience, I have seven years of classroom teaching that encompasses elementary, middle and high school levels.

Before I began working in public education, I was a Corporate Educator and Information Analyst for Aetna Insurance. I am a proud Veteran having served in the United States Air Force and Air National Guard. During my time in the military (1989-1998), I amassed nearly 1800 flying hours as an In-Flight Refueling Technician aboard the KC-135 refueling jet, and I attended flight school at NAS Pensacola as a student navigator. Having served our country as both a Non-Commissioned Officer and a Commissioned Officer, I honorably left the military to pursue civilian opportunities.

In May of 2019, I received my Ed.D. in Organizational Leadership from Stockton University. I also have an M.Ed. in Executive Educational Leadership, Management and Policy from Seton Hall University (2007) and a B.A. in Political Science from Stockton University (1996). A life-long resident of New Jersey, I was raised in Delran and currently reside in Williamstown with my wife and children. I remain active in my community, volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, the Monroe Township Economic Development Commission, and the Knights of Columbus.
