I grew up in Waterbury and moved to Oxford in 2001. I'm married to Jennifer Garcia, have an 8 year-old daughter, Alexandra and a Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Buster. I work as a licensed clincial social worker at a mental health center in Bridgeport and have been in the mental health field for almost 20 years. I'm a registered Democrat and consider myself to be a progressive realist. I enjoy spending time with my family, asst-coaching youth sports, playing golf and continuing my family tradition of wine-making.
