How have you worked to improve Bay View in the past?
I grew up in Bay View and my wife and I are excited to raise our two children here. My father led the community for decades and taught me the importance of serving our beautiful beach community and protecting our private status. He passed away in 2018 and I look to him as a role model every day.
Before I was even old enough to drive, I was actively involved in all aspects of Bay View: like many others, I ran in the beach races and enjoyed our fun events, helped clean up the beach on July 5th each year, planted the garden on the green, and lent a hand during those terrible storms. Eventually, I served as a lifeguard for three summers while in high school 1997-1999.
Most recently, I joined the BVIA Board in June 2021. In that short time, I’ve worked diligently with the members of the committees and my fellow board members – all great neighbors volunteering their time. I helped lead efforts to install a new garden on the green, assisted in finding our lifeguards, helped plan the Centennial celebration, and served on the mat, sign, and garden committees.
I also have strong relationships with Milford’s mayor and police department and have used that to help secure the new red crosswalks at Odell and Warren, and add a new crosswalk at Oakland. We are also working to replace faded street signs and find inventive ways to reduce motorcycle noise.
I teach law at Yale and have found my legal background valuable as I work to preserve and improve our beach. I serve on the boards of 3 technology companies and previously served on the boards of two other nonprofits.
What are your plans for the future?
My goal is to preserve our beautiful beach community and ensure it can be enjoyed by our kids – and their kids! I will work tirelessly to adhere to our Charter and protect our private beach status.
I will preserve our beach’s natural beauty while making sensible improvements to guard against flooding and improve our community in a thoughtful, cost-effective manner. I am eager to ensure Bay View is in a strong financial position so we can weather future storms and have the funds needed to keep the BVIA thriving.
I work hard to cultivate a collegial community of neighbors who can enjoy the beach together. My family has been in Bay View since 1949 so I know our history well, and I also have a young family, so I view our community from multiple perspectives and hope to help bridge divides. My goal is to preserve our beautiful community and help keep it on a great path for our next hundred years!
