Background and Experience
Although he was born in Washington, DC in the summer of 1970, and his Mother, Father and him all moved to Columbia, Howard County when he wasn’t even a year old. Other than when he was in college, he spent the next 40 years living in Columbia before moving to Owings Mills.
Starting before he was a teenager, he started a commercial and residential grounds maintenance company that he eventually sold to attend college. He experienced both public education (attending public Elementary and Middle School in Columbia) as well as private education (he spent all four years of High School at the McDonogh School in Owings Mills).
When it was time for college, he went to Elon College (now Elon University) just outside of Burlington, North Carolina. While at Elon, he served two years on the executive board of my college fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi. He is proud to say that he was able to lead his fraternity chapter to two national awards for philanthropic activities.
Immediately following my college career, he rode his bicycle over 3,700 miles from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., to raise money and awareness for people with disabilities as part of PUSH America (now known as the Journey of Hope). As a result of his cross-country ride, he received the “Thousand Points of Light” award from President George H. W. Bush.
A mere two days following the completion of the cross-country trip, he was sitting in his first law school classes at the University of Baltimore School of Law. While attending U.B. Law, he served on the executive board of Sigma Delta Kappa Intercollegiate Law Fraternity both as a student and also on the executive board of the Alumni Chapter.
Several years later, he was a Charter Member of the Clarksville Rotary Club (Rotary International), and he remains active in volunteer activities that benefit the local community. Following in the footsteps of his Grandfather, he is a 32º K.C.C.H. Mason in the Benjamin B. French Lodge in Washington, D.C. and he is also in the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction.
As one of the leaders in legal technology, he lectured at the Maryland Bar Association‘s Mid-Year Technology Conference, and published in the Maryland Bar Journal.
He was admitted to practice law in the State of Maryland in 1995 in front of the Maryland Court of Appeals, and in 1996 the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.
When not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and other family members, goose hunting on the Eastern Shore, and going to both Baltimore Ravens and Baltimore Orioles games.
