I grew up in the Maryland suburbs of Washington D C , graduated college, Valparaiso University, and lived in the Midwest for 25 years, returning to the Mid-Atlantic region in 1991.
Since returning to the East Coast, I have been involved in a number of mission oriented activities in my local congregation and on a national basis.
I currently serve on the Boards of Directors of the various Concordia Plans, Thrivent Financial, Valparaiso University, Lutheran Family Services in Virginia and Lutheran Services Florida. I am also active in my home congregation, Trinity Lutheran Church, Richmond VA.
My wife Karen and I live in Richmond VA. Our two children and their spouses, and three grandchildren, all live nearby.
