Although I was born on Long Island and spent my childhood in New York, New England, and Atlanta, I have been a proud Virginian since 1980. I’m also the proud father to my children, Katie, Jack, Molly, and Peter, and grandfather to my nine grandchildren.

Outside of the office, I like to always keep myself active. I enjoy the many outdoor opportunities our beautiful state offers, such as hiking, biking, hunting, and fishing. I also appreciate homebrewing’s creative process and like experimenting with brews such as ales, lagers, stouts, porters, cider, and mead. Of course, pairing my homebrews makes it an even more rewarding process when I perfect a fantastic smoked BBQ pork shoulder and the requisite sides and sauces.

When I'm not outside enjoying nature or spending time at home, I enjoy live music in most genres, mainly blues, folk, bluegrass, rock and classical, or cheering on my alma mater, the University of Virginia Cavaliers.

Giving back to my community is also an essential part of who I am, and I also try to volunteer with our local food bank whenever I can.
