EDUCATION Washington and Jefferson College (BA), University of North Carolina (JD)
PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION My father was a broadcaster and journalist for more than 35 years, so from an early age, I developed an appreciation for the written and spoken word, as well as an understanding of the vital importance of active listening and effective questioning.
CIVIC EFFORT Nine years ago, I joined fellow community and business leaders in creating Lift Orlando, which is dedicated to revitalizing the neighborhood around Camping World Stadium. I am proud of our continuing efforts to invest in the residents of West Lakes and help this historically black and underserved neighborhood thrive. Over $100 million in improvements to the neighborhood have been added or are in development.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I hail from the same hometown of Latrobe, Pa., as Arnold Palmer, Mr. Rogers and Rolling Rock Beer. We all ended up in Central Florida.
NEW HOBBY My wife and I have recently taken up pickle ball.
SABBATICAL TOPIC An in-depth and immersive study of European history, including the politics, conflicts, art and religion, set within the beautiful Italian region of Tuscany
