Born in Woodhaven, Queens, he attended the public schools, Far Rockaway High School in Far Rockaway, Queens, and Packard Commercial School in New York City. He moved to Rockaway Park, Queens in 1901, engaged in the insurance and real-estate business, and served in the United States Navy as a yeoman first class from 1917 to 1919.

He was a member of the New York State Assembly (Queens Co., 5th D.) in 1922, 1923, 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927 and 1928.

He was elected as a Democrat to the Seventy-first and to the three succeeding Congresses, holding office from March 4, 1929, until his resignation on September 27, 1935, having been elected sheriff of Queens County.
