Biographical Info

 I was born and raised in Manassas, Va as the 5th of 5 boys and a little sister. I graduated from Osbourn Park High School in 1976. I then graduated from Averett University in Danville, Va in 1980 with a BS degree in Business Administration. At Averett is where I met his lovely wife Kathy and we have been married for 34 years. We have 3 beautiful daughters and 3 granddaughters.
I have had many different career paths that include – Federal Government sales; travel industry; business brokerage; family car business; healthcare recruiting; audio marketing and HR outsourcing. During most of my career I have been involved in leadership roles in community and industry organizations. In 2003 I was named PW Chamber’s Member of the Year and in 2006 became their Chairman of the Board. In 2007 I became the Co-Chairman of the inaugural Board of Regents for Leadership Prince William. Also in 2007 I received Manassas City’s “Loy E. Harris Award” which is given annually by the Mayor to the small business person of the year. Also that same year I was elected as Chairman of the board of the International ON Hold Messaging Association. In 2008 I was elected President of the Bull Run Kiwanis Club and in 2009 was appointed to The American Small Business Coalition’s Executive Committee and later that year received The ASBC’s Flag Bearer Award as member of the year.
