Employer: HSBC, Vice President, Cluster Branch Manager 

Why: I became a Rotarian because I wanted to make a difference in the community and I felt that I was not capitalizing on the opportunities to make a difference by helping people. I also wanted to be around a group that was dedicated to improving things for others, being selfless, with serving other before themselves. Finally I joined because I felt that this would be a good way to make Ashburn feel more like a community to me and my family in Northern Virginia. 

Family - Wife Meredith of 8 years, who is the wonderful mother of our two children, Carter and Benjamin . She is also a Language Arts teacher at Briar Woods High School and has been teaching for 8 years. We also have a Yorkshire Terrier name Louie. We have lived in Ashburn for over 6 years.
