I am a life time resident of Lake Township second generation board member, my father served on the Township Fire Department and then on the Township Board as a Trustee. I am a graduate of Bridgman Public Schools and then onto an Associate degree at Lake Michigan College. I have graduated from the Michigan Township Academy Credential governmental Education. My career has been in public service to the area first in Law Enforcement with the Berrien County Sheriff Department and then with the Baroda – Lake Township Police Department. I am married 26 years to Cindy and we have three boys Owen, Duncan and Cooper.

Civic involvement has been with the Lions Club, Bridgman Public School Board trustee, Sons of the American Legion post #336.
I was appointed as Township Supervisor in July of 2002 and then elected 2004. I enjoy the field of public service and feel that Lake Township provides excellent services for the community.


  • Thanks the Bridgman Public Schools and Shane Peters for helping to come up with a solution to the traffic congestion at Reed Middle School during drop off and pick up times. There has been a significant reduction in traffic back-up onto California Road.
