I am a self-employed consultant. Previously, as a Senior Financial Advisor, I provided sound financial advice and value-added service to my clients-always striving to build long-term relationships based on mutual trust, respect and integrity. I have also owned and co-owned small businesses within different industries and understand what it takes to navigate successfully through the obstacles of the business landscape. Active in the local community, I participate in many civic and community organizations, including The Langley Civic Leaders Association. I have previously served as a Trustee on the School Board at Trinity Lutheran School in Newport News. I also served on the Peninsula Hokie Club board. My wife Amy and I live in Carrollton, VA with our two daughters Heidi, who attends Virginia Tech, and Holly who attends Peninsula Catholic High School.
