Co-Founder / Advisory Board Member
I was born at a naval hospital in Virginia, where my father was stationed. He later served at a shipyard in Philadelphia. Following his military service, he worked at The Ship Systems Engineering Station - SSES known at that time as NAVSSES. Personal experience with several friends and family members, including my Godfather, that have PTSD, drives my involvement with the Veterans Are Foundation.
As one of the co-founders of VAF I want to ensure those who deal with loss of hope, pain and related hardships, that result from the years of service to our country, get the help and respect they deserve. My years in construction management, sustainable site design and alternative energy use has taught me to utilize innovative technologies and hybrid solutions to assure that projects are a success. I want to use this experience to help build VAF's programs to provide lasting solutions for our disadvantaged Heroes of Service that have worked so hard to make this such a great Nation.
I currently sit on the USGBC Sustainable Policy Committee and the Renewable Residential Committee. I am also a member of the Northeast Florida Builders Association, Florida Home Builders Association and National Home Builders Association. My mission is to hire our Heroes of Service.
