At Penn State, he earned an associate degree in Community Service and a B.S. in Criminal Justice. He dedicated 32 years to the Boyertown Police Department, serving as Chief of Police for the last two decades. Prior to retirement, he began giving talks about his Native American heritage to various civic groups. His programs teach others about the early lives of the Lenape people and the changes that their society went through in the 18th century through the use of artifacts (real and reproductions), furs, and traditional storytelling.
