Welcome East Penn School District
Students, Parents, Educators, and Residents.

I am a native of the Lehigh Valley and a Freedom High School graduate. While attending the Pennsylvania State University, I received a a duel bachelor’s degree in Economics and Political Science. As a product of public education and having a family full of educators, I understand the value of a strong public education system, both for individual students, but also the community as a whole. When my wife and I moved back to the Lehigh Valley in 2008, we intentionally settled in the East Penn School District. I look forward to having the opportunity to use my skills and experience to build on the strong legacy of academic excellence of our district.

Professionally, I am a Senior Wealth Advisor for Mercer Advisors. I successfully co-owned Andesa Financial Management, Inc., a local wealth management and financial planning firm where I served both as the lead portfolio manager as well as the Chief Compliance Officer for 17 years before the firm was acquired by Mercer Advisors. 

I live Macungie with my wife, Melissa, and our two daughters, who are both students in the East Penn School District. My wife and I are deeply invested in the local community.  Currently, I serve on the board of directors for the Boys & Girls Club of Allentown.
