I have been in love with Maryland since moving here almost 35 years ago. I am grateful to have built a happy life, started several small businesses, and raised a beautiful family in Maryland. Our state has given so much to me and my family. That is why I’m running for Congress – to serve the state that I love and make sure Marylanders are always heard.
My wife Karen and I have raised our children in Pasadena on crabbing, biking, boating, and countless other unique activities our community possesses.
I have founded multiple technology, real estate, and development companies throughout Anne Arundel and Prince George’s County. About a decade ago, I launched a real estate brokerage that employs nearly 600 licensed agents, creating great-paying Maryland jobs. In every business interaction, I have sought to ensure the organization’s mission is to create a better quality of life for employees and clients alike.
"Maryland is a special place and I join in your dedication in making it even better."
I’ve neither held political office nor have ever lobbied. Throughout my life, I never aspired to be a politician; however, I have always felt a draw to public service. As a young man, I first pursued serving our country as an enlisted United States Marine, continuing on as a Cryptologic Naval Officer.
I’ve worked hard to improve Maryland’s business and job environment by creating real jobs for real people. I have also used my legal education to be an advocate for equality, social justice, and sensible solutions to issues we all have in common.
Now, it is time to continue to serve Maryland in the role of your next representative in Congress. Maryland is a special place and I join in your dedication in making it even better.
