I spent my childhood roaming the streets of South Livonia on my 1992 GT Mach One BMX. I was a regular at Wonderland Mall, Cutting Corner, Daly, Bread Basket, Senate Coney Island and too many more to name. I attended elementary school at Cleveland, middle school at Emerson and high school at Franklin.
During my days at Franklin, I was blessed to meet my beautiful wife Kacie, who to this day claims the only reason she agreed to go on a date was that I was the captain of the Franklin Hockey team. She is a graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Special Education. She loved the education she received from Livonia Public Schools so much she joined the team and is teaching at our alma mater, Franklin High School, in the resource room. Following my incredible Livonia Public Schools education, I attended Lawrence Tech and obtained a degree in Construction Engineering and graduated with honors.
My professional career really took off in 2008 when I served as the Director of Construction for Habitat for Humanity. During my employment, our affiliate renovated and built over 65 homes across Macomb County providing safe housing for many deserving families. My biggest accomplishment at Habitat was leading a project to create Macomb County’s first LEED for Homes Platinum certified project.
Currently, I serve as the Facilities Manager for the City of Novi with the overall management of Novi’s award-winning Facilities Management Division. This division is tasked with the day to day operation of all the city’s facilities and grounds. On top of these responsibilities, I also act as the City of Novi’s owner’s representative on capital projects including the ongoing Department of Public Work expansion project. Lastly, I have trail blazed many of the sustainable initiatives that include LED lighting retrofits, HVAC upgrades, solar projects and promoted stormwater management through the installation of rain gardens. These efforts have contributed to the City of Novi’s Gold Status through the Michigan Municipal League for the last two years.
My wife and I purchased our family home in Burton Hollow Estates in 2009 and in 2014 we welcomed our one of a kind daughter Harper (Harps) Rose. We are convinced that she will be both the Captain of the USA Women’s Olympic Hockey team and the President of the United States. In the fall, she will begin the journey by starting kindergarten in the same classrooms her proud parents did so many years ago!
