Born in Baltimore, attended U of Maryland where I played lacrosse and than went to grad school at Florida State. Worked as an intern for The Colts in the scouting department and refused to go with them after the move. Got a job with the Bears in their scouting department where I worked for five years.
Left and got into the investment banking industry, working at the Board of Trade in Chicago. I lived there until 1995 when I had a five year exile in Indinapolis working on an investment deal. Moved to California in 2000, first to Newport Beach and than to San Diego where I've been for five years.
I've been a season ticket holder of the Ravens since day one, and travel to at least three games a year at home and several on the road. I had the pleasure of working with Steve on the banking deal when he bought the Ravens and have also worked with others in the front office.
While the Bears and Chargers( who were always a favorite when Unitas went there) are still teams I follow, the Ravens are the team I bleed for.
On the side I coached HS football and basketball at Vista HS in suburban San Diego until the last year when I had a health issue that has really had me cut back on hobbies, traveling etc.. I've had the pleasure of meeting other board members in AZ, san Diego and of course Baltimore. Hopefully health willing I'll be able to meet more of you in the coming season.
