My mother taught me: surround yourself with good people and good things will happen – and so far that’s proven true. My love of educating and helping others has always been at the forefront of my professional life, both as a teacher and later as a financial advisor.
My wife, Kimberly, and I – along with our kids, Gavin and Riley – are proud residents of Smithfield and I had the pleasure of founding our town’s American Legion Baseball Program. I love the sport and if I could do anything else, I’d be a college baseball coach.
When I’m not working, I enjoy staying active in my community and have served as vice mayor of Smithfield since 2008. I’m also the board president of Voices for Kids CASA, a nonprofit group benefitting abused and neglected children, a lifetime member of Riverview United Methodist Church and a board member of Smithfield Virginia Events.
There are a few things people might not know about me. For one, I was born two months premature and weighed just 4 pounds, 11 ounces. Also, on my bucket list is to learn how to fly a plane. Lastly, one thing I can’t live without? Peanut butter, no question about it.
