I am a lover of food, friends, family, fun, movies, sports, concerts, cocktails, a worthy debate, the ocean and politics. I consider myself to be a very fair critic, have the patience of a saint, and choose every battle very wisely. As the son of a retired U.S. Air Force officer, I spent most of my childhood traveling around the country and the world with a great deal of my formative years being raised in Europe. I attribute my world-view and character to this upbringing abroad. Traveling the world at a young age showed me how fortunate I was, especially in comparison to the youth in other countries. This made a deep impression, laying a firm foundation for the power of compassion. After settling in Maryland I became a partner in my first printing firm in my early twenties and have had an entrepreneurial spirit ever since. As a young entrepreneur, this platform enabled and encouraged me to be an advocate for people in my community and beyond. Something firmly instilled in me by my father, and a trait I hope to pass on to my son. Cast member on the FOX Reality Television Show, Good Fellas of Baltimore, I support & sponsor many networking organizations in the area and I am one of the founding members of Network For a Cure, Baltimore Business Networking & Baltimore Means Business.
