I worked in the environmental clean-up and remediation industry for much of my career. From working as a hazardous waste technician under dangerous conditions, to owning one of the most respected environmental firms in New England, I have been at the tip of the spear in the growth and evolution of the environmental industry.

I believe in environmental stewardship and in promoting regulations that protect the environment while creating new economic opportunities. I have proven that business can live in harmony with the environment and that good environmental practices produce healthy profits. In order to preserve the quality of life we enjoy in the Commonwealth, we must balance conservation, growth, and development. That responsibility and our commitment to meeting it, is fundamental to our prosperity, the preservation of our culture, and our natural resources.
