I'm a longtime resident of Tanglewood Lane in Nottingham Manor and a City Council alumni. A native of Pittsburgh, I came to Newark in 1961 to attend the UD. My wife Reid and I are both UD grads. We have three daughters and ten grandchildren. I've since retired from three major Delaware companies: IBM, Hercules, and most recently MBNA/Bank of America, where I was senior vice president in charge of mobile/contactless payment strategies.
I've served on the boards of the Newark Housing Authority, Newark Symphony, Newark Country Club, and Newark Senior Center, whereas president I spearheaded the fundraising campaign to build the organization's current Nationally recognized building and programs. I am also the President of the Tanglewood Lane holiday lights committee.
