I attended Regent University School of Law in sunny Virginia Beach, Virginia. I was awarded the Beazley Scholarship and received the degree Juris Doctor.
I spent a number of years in business, most notably by serving as management in the food and nutritional supplement industries. Because of this background, I understand the challenges and opportunities facing organizations when carrying out their operations.
Though I’m from beautiful Upstate New York (an awesome region of farms, woods, lakes, and mountains), I’ve made the Hampton Roads region of Virginia my home for over 30 years.
Growing up, my parents, by word and example, instilled in me the significant value of faith, integrity, education, and hard work, and I’m ever grateful for their influence on me.
In college, I studied Bible, theology, and missions, in preparation for service in ministry. Though I instead determined to practice law, my heart has remained inclined toward Christian service, volunteering in churches over the years as a layman in various roles, such as leading Bible studies and teaching theology classes.
Favorite Thing About My Job:

They’re on the front lines, and I have their backs.
In My Spare Time:

I really enjoy good novels and listening to a wide variety of music. And I’m trying to regain my skills on the trumpet after many years of neglect!
