I'm a lifelong resident of Trumbull who became interested in local history while growing up in the historic Ephraim Hawley House (circa 1670-1690) located in the heart of the historic village of Nichols. My family has restored numerous historic buildings and built several Colonial reproduction homes that were featured in the New York Times and Early American Life magazine. I'm a graduate of the Williston Northampton School and the University of Denver. After spending 20 years in the Financial Services sector, I'm currently doing inside sales at the New Haven Register. I'm a member of the Stratford and Trumbull Historical Societies, and I also serve as the Town Coordinator for the towns of Newtown, Stratford and Trumbull for USGenWeb, a free genealogy and history website. I do research and have written articles on local history for the Trumbull Times and have created dozens of articles on Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, on Trumbull history. I'm also the Armorer and Business Manager for the Lancraft Fife and Drum Corps. After a year in production, my community access TV show, "Connecticut Stories", is finally on the air. The show is dedicated to local history and is recorded at the Charter Community Vision 21 studio in Newtown and is broadcast to their Western Connecticut Franchise 14 town area; Trumbull, Monroe, Newtown, Brookfield, New Fairfield, Sherman, Bridgewater, Roxbury, New Milford, Kent, Southbury, Woodbury, Bethlehem and Washington. You can watch "Connecticut Stories" on CTV-21  Wednesday's @ 8:30 PM and Thursday's @ 2:30 PM.
