I am a product of the Maryland Education System: I attended elementary school in Annapolis and Junior High in Arnold and graduated from Annapolis High (Class of 1981!). I studied at AACC and then at the University of Maryland at College Park where I graduated with Honors Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Government. Later, I pursued and earned my Law Degree from the University of Maryland School of Law.
I proudly served our nation for 22 years as a U.S. Army Special Forces soldier and officer. After retiring from the Army I began practicing law as a private attorney. I have worked and lived in Central and South America, Asia, and the Middle East, and I speak fluent Spanish. As such, many of my law hours have been spent serving the Latino Communities in AA, QA and other Eastern Shore counties.
