I was born and raised in Hampton, Virginia where I played sports all my life but excelled in football & baseball. In 1982, I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and became a Hydraulic Pneumatic & Electronic Technician on jet aircraft & jet helicopters. In 1995, I enrolled in Alpha College of Real Estate and became a licensed Realtor. In my spare time, I enjoy racing cars, motorcycles and ATV’s with my 12-year old son who is an athlete himself & excels in football, baseball & basketball (YES Proud Father) & yes, I coach all his teams along with previously coaching football for my Alma Mater and 6 time State Champion Phoebus High School. In 2005, I started financing and investing in real estate ventures. I then decided to make real estate finance my profession.
