Born and raised in Harford County, Maryland, I attended Harford Day School with my 2 sisters and spent the summers working long days at my cousin's produce farm in Jarrettsville. Between my parents' sacrifice to send us to the best schools and working on the farm, I learned at an early age the value of hard work and how that work defines us. I went on to graduate from Loyola High School, where I experienced the gift of giving and the Jesuit philosophy "a man for others." This doctrine showed me that the true joy in life is giving back and helping others.
I graduated from University of Maryland College Park in 1988 with double major in finance and transportation. In 1993, I started my own business in international logistics in a just-in-time industry, and specialized in the time sensitive movement of over sized cargo shipping from the U.S. to foreign destinations all over the world.
A cancer survivor since 2004, I have been blessed with the realization that time and health are our two most precious commodities and to be never taken for granted. I am currently married to and work with my best friend. We have two children. One currently attending Penn State and the other a graduate of Furman University applying to medical school.
My hobbies include growing anything that flowers; I love flowers and how the landscape can make a home more beautiful and unique. I also enjoy running and physical fitness and have run multiple marathons. One needs only to complete a marathon to realize that anything is possible if you believe. Furthermore, coaching is also a passion of mine as I love teaching young people the value of hard work.

Your happiness is my driving force and I promise I will go above and beyond to assist you in making the most important purchase of your life. Honesty, integrity and communication are at the core of my work ethic. My goal is simply to make your entire real estate experience a positive one from start to finish.
I appreciate the opportunity to meet and work with you. Please give me a call today if you are considering buying, selling or renting. I look forward to assisting you in making the most informed decision possible.
