Born and raised in Ohio, he graduated from Ashland University and Ohio Northern Law School. As a resident of Northern Virginia for the past 40 years, he applied his knowledge of law practicing as an attorney, serving as a public policy official, supporting Congressional members and candidates and promoting common understanding between government and industry.
