Meet – A – Dad
Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
I’m originally from Bergen County, NJ. My family moved to Ridgefield when I was three years old and I have been in town for the last 34 years.
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
I have been a volunteer fireman with the Ridgefield Volunteer Fire Department for fifteen years and was elected to the Fire Commision for the last eight.
Favorite things to do in your free time?
My favorite things to do when I’m not working are spending time with my wife Sylvie and our two daughters, Olivia and Charlotte. I enjoy my oldest daughter Olivia’s soccer games on Saturdays as well as walking down main street with my family, and all the wonderful restaurants and activities Ridgefield has to offer.
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
My business venture is Ridgefield Moving. We have been serving the greater Ridgefield area for over 15 years. I’ve partnered or worked with several local businesses including Ridgefield Hardware, Fairfield County Bank Corp, Ridgefield Apartments, Maplewood Senior Living and Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe.
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
I’m a long time Ridgefield resident. I attended Veterans
Park Elementary School, East Ridge Middle School and Ridgefield High School in the 1990’s. Ridgefield has shaped every facet of my life. I started my business in town,and met my wife while we were in school here together. We were so comfortable here in Ridgefield that we decided to raise our family here so that our children could avail themselves of the many advantages our town has to offer. Ridgefield is a truly special place and I’m grateful to be a part of our thriving business community.
