Organizations I am Affiliated with:
Most Precious Blood Catholic Church
Since its inception in 2005 I have been a member of the Most Precious Blood Catholic Church parish. I began as a parishioner but quickly joint the music ministry as a Djembe player. Wanting to be even more a part of the parish and with past experience as a sacristan, I volunteered to be a sacristan for the parish on weekends. A sacristan for those unfamiliar with the catholic church is a person who prepares the church for Mass, sets up all the items need for Mass and assists the priest in preparing for Mass and then after Mass returns the church to its pre Mass condition. This is done on a rotating schedule with other volunteers and when I am not serving in the capacity of sacristan I also serve as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.
Community Law Enforcement Academy (CLEA) and Citizens on Patrol (CoP)
In August of 2018 I, along with my wife, completed a fifteen-week course put on by the Florida Seminole County Sheriffs Office for citizens to learn in depth about the counties Sheriffs office in extensive detail, the Community Law Enforcement Academy (CLEA). After completing the CLEA academy the individual becomes eligible to begin training to volunteer as a Citizens on Patrol (CoP), an organization also a part of the Seminole County Sheriff’s office. The CoP is also a volunteer organization that is out in the community assisting the deputies in some of their duties and helping the community in many ways. In mid-May 2019, I completed my classroom study and training, and in early June I completed my field training and now proudly serve the citizens of Seminole County and support the Seminole County Sheriffs Deputies as a CoP.
Past Organizations I am/was Affiliated with:
Florida Young Artists Orchestra (FYAO)
I was a member of the Florida Young Artists Orchestra (FYAO) as a board member from 2005 to 2007 I served on the board as a director and webmaster. I aided the FYAO by redesigning the web site with the intent on helping to gain public attention to the orchestra and the outstanding opportunities for youth of the community.
Oviedo High School Band Boosters Association (OHSBBA)
I was a member of the Oviedo High School Band Boosters Association from 2003 to 2007. I served on the board as a chair person in charge of the booster associations web sight and supported the Band activities on occasion as chaperone.
Riverside at Twin Rivers Home Owners Association
In 2016 I retired as a member of the Riverside at Twin Rivers Home Owners Association. For the past 10 years I have served as the President of the association after starting and serving as a Director. I proudly serve for 13 years and during that time the HOA changed its perception from being a dictatorship self centered non caring or listening organization to a ore open minded, fair no personal agenda and for the community oriented group of people. I think that is one reason why I and my fellow board members were re-elected year after year and very appreciated by many of our residents.
Oviedo Home Owners Association (HOA) Presidents Association
For 5 years I served as a member of the Oviedo HOA Presidents Association I served as the founding President of the association. I continue my association as a consultant and active member until I retired from my HOA Board. The OHPA is an association formed for the presidents and board members for the city of Oviedo Home Owners Association. This organization is an opportunity where by the HOA presidents and there board members can meet to discuss common issues and learn about new things to help their communities.
