Why I chose this career: I took the Police test just after my cousin Brian who was appointed six months before me and who I was fortunate enough to get to work with, to help this great city where I was born and raised.
The proudest moment of my career: Getting promoted to Sergeant the day before my wedding which allowed for much of my family to attend both.
I celebrate my Irish heritage by: Visiting and spending time with my many Irish relatives, also bringing the family to the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade and hosting a yearly March 17th dinner.
