Coming Home

It's so very nice to be back in BTV! After a number of years away from home, the most recent decade spent in Bennington, I've returned to the historic family farmstead in Williston. My wife and two young children are settled in nicely and enjoying the wonders of country living. I look forward to bringing my love for the Lake Champlain basin and my experience with strategic thinking and non-profit management to my role as Director of Development and Community Relations of ECHO.

Generations of my family have called Vermont home - most of them living within the Lake Champlain Basin. My grandparents' camp on Malletts Bay transformed the summers of my youth into one big lake adventure. Now my children are experiencing that same wonder. In preparing for our move from Bennington to Williston I found a pond yacht made by my grandfather at age 10. Over the winter I hope to restore the yacht so that we can return it to Lake Champlain in the spring.

This landscape - this lake - this basin, are intertwined with all of our lives and define what it means to live here. I am very happy to have a hand in supporting ECHO, this wonderful institution that is the voice, the educational gateway, to Lake Champlain.
