Our BYP Chair was born in Becket, MA. He lived in a variety of Berkshire locales growing up before his family settled in Pittsfield. There, he and his large Irish family lived with and took care of his grandmother who was suffering from Alzheimer’s. He attended Taconic High before going to MCLA and eventually completed his Master’s degree in Communications from the College of St. Rose. He has worked for Berkshire United Way for five years, is happily married to a Lenox local who he has known for 16 years. They have two giant dogs and two boring cats. His favorite things to do are watch Downton Abbey, hike with his dogs who never listen to him, and post pictures on Instagram.
