Get to Know Me

I met my wife, Melanie, at church in Cambridge, MA in 2006 and got married in 2007. We have four kids: two boys and two girls, ages 4-11. We love going on family bike rides, camping, long road trips (including a 32-day marathon across the US in 2020), making cookies, and watching movies together on Friday nights.

Melanie and I currently sell custom-built oak furniture made from red oak harvested on our land, and we are expanding into fresh produce production, planting 250 apple trees and starting a farm stand in July.

What’s the best trip you’ve ever taken and why?

During July 2020, we decided to take a road trip across the US with the family. We packed up our minivan and drove all around, first down the Shenandoah Valley to Tennessee, then across the country on I-40 stopping in Arkansas, New Mexico, and Arizona. We went north from there, visiting my family in Utah, then up to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Then we stayed close to the Canadian border all the way to Upper Peninsula in Michigan, to camp on Lake Superior, before we headed home. We traveled 8400 miles, spent 107 hours in the car, visited 6 National Parks, and crossed through 25 states. We were on the road for 34 days. I thought we’d be ready to kill ourselves by the end, but we actually were a little sad when we got home!

A Great Fit

“I wanted to make a return to consulting if the opportunity was right, and that’s when Centric found me. I knew it was a great fit right away.”
