Besides work I enjoy good food and beverage. My son says I am a wine “yes” not a wino. I enjoy learning about food and regularly take cooking classes to learn more techniques and cultures. I also enjoy exercise and the outdoors. I am a 4th degree black belt in Shaolin Kempo while now I practice mostly Tai Chi. I play with sprint triathlons and other types of hiking, cycling and swimming.

Community development and economic sustainability are my passions. So I’m involved with different associations to learn about the North Charleston and Hanahan area. I’ve purchased commercial properties in these areas to help get me into the neighborhoods.
