I enjoy volunteering with different organizations such as the Food Shuttle of WNY, Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the United Way Day of Caring. I have been an emergency responder for the American Red Cross and former Scoutmaster of Troop 2 in Buffalo, NY. During the winter, I spend time in my wood shop painting bird houses. I am an avid gardener of flowers and vegetables. I enjoy camping, canoeing, fishing and hiking. My slogan is "I'd rather be Outdoors".
