About Me

I have been selected as a Safety Ambassador for the MS150 City to Shore bike ride I will ride in to benefit MS. It will be my second ride and I am looking forward to it again.


I will also be running in the Philadelphia rock and roll Half Marathon and Philadelphia Distance Run (PDR) again. I run Broad Street also in all kinds of weather.


Participating in these charity events gives me a chance to do my favorite sports and raise money for these much needed charities in a fun and supportive environment. I encourage everyone to participate.


Most importantly, I have just been appointed a Director of the Montgomery Bar Association.
