Meet Ty

I am raising two young children in Salem with my high school sweetheart, Micah. We grew up in a small Maine town, and attended public school and the University of Maine. Following the events of September 11th, 2001, I joined the Army, with a commitment to serve as an officer after graduation from college.

After receiving my commission from the Army, Micah and I were married. I then spent the next three years serving as a Platoon Leader and Executive Officer with the 75th Fires Brigade in Oklahoma. We then moved back to New England, where I earned a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Massachusetts.

Today I am a technology professional, photographer (@hellosalem), Salem history enthusiast and advocate for smart urban growth. I believe that Salem is at a crossroads, and we deserve strong thoughtful leadership to keep our city affordable, inclusive and vibrant.
