Dear OTI Education Center Students & Partners,
I am excited to be joining the OTI Education Center as the new Director and wanted to take a minute to introduce myself.
I spent the last nine years at the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) where I led the marketing efforts for all modalities of training and helped launch both the online training division and hands-on training programs for various NFPA codes. I also introduced the content marketing program used for audience development for the contract training division. On the program development side of the house, I developed multiple programs around NFPA 70E, the Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace and spearheaded the conversion of the delivery of traditional training programs to an online setting.
I plan to use my experience from the NFPA and other previous positions to continue the great work already being done in delivering OSHA training programs as well as related safety training from Keene State. I look forward to working with our staff, instructors, partners, OSHA, Keene State administration and the safety community to deliver high impact training in the modality that works best for our students.
I am a native to New England and reside in Massachusetts with my wife and two college aged children. In my spare time I officiate high school basketball and I am a member of IAABO Board 54.
