As a graduate from Southern Connecticut State University in 2011 I majored in Political Science with concentrations in International Relations and Urban Politics. I also minored in United States History and 20th Century European History. I have been a volunteer firefighter for the cities of Ansonia and Shelton since 2012 and enjoy being able to help people throughout the community. I am involved in the restoration efforts of the old Ansonia Opera House to highlight its rich history and provide a public space for the residents of Ansonia to enjoy. I am a fan of the New England Patriots and Boston Bruins. Hobbies I enjoy include fishing, paintball, visiting many of the local breweries around Connecticut, video and tabletop games, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I enjoy finding the hidden places and the road less traveled. Connecticut has so much to offer that many people tend to miss going about their normal day.
