Community participation

Southeastern Virginia Community Foundation Board Member

Great Bridge Battlefield and Waterways Foundation Board of Trust


One of my biggest interests includes ways to make a difference within my community through such activities as co-founding two art festivals to support local charities, serving a four year term on Chesapeake City Council and serving as aboard member for Southeastern Virginia Community Foundation.

My love of sports in my youth eventually led me to playing football for the University of Virginia as a scholarship student athlete. Staying active these days is still very much a part of my life through biking, running, walking and doing anything close to or on the water.

Most importantly, I truly value time with family and good friends.
