Soap’s career choices spawn from his lived experience as a foster child and the connection he formed with his social worker. Although the first half of his adult life was spent working his way up the trades, from laborer to inspector, his desire for a deeper meaning in life led him to switch his career path. With empathy as his guide, he started volunteering at local food pantries, sports programs, and community events, which propelled him to obtain his Associate of Arts in psychology from Bunker Hill University. His background includes consulting for Saugus public schools, facilitating groups at Lynn drug court, and case-management for various agencies that include underserved populations (such as homeless and those with DCF involvement).
In his spare time, you may catch him jamming out at a coffee shop with his guitar, hiking the mountains in New Hampshire, or mentoring the youth at his church.
