I'm a Pittsburgh native, raised in Swissvale into my teen years and then Penn Township, about 25 miles outside the city, through high school. Since graduating college and starting a full time job, I've moved back to the Pittsburgh area, the heart of downtown, in fact.
I've spent a large portion of my life working with and alongside police departments in the nearby communities of Pittsburgh through my family's business. I am also an avid animal friend, and believe that the work the K9 units do is a special and important function in the police departments around the world.
That being said, my goal is to try to help as many local communities as I can in getting protective vests for their K9 unit's dogs to keep them safe in the line of duty. The City of Pittsburgh Police Department unfortunately saw the tragedy of what can happen without the vests when they lost K9 Rocco, and I want to try to prevent that from happening somewhere else in the Pittsburgh area.
