Updated: May 9, 2022

He has a BS in Marketing from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, which is where he currently resides with his wife and Brittany Spaniel, Millie.

  1. What is your role at Obsidian? As the Transition Resource Manager, I'm the liaison supporting both our Operations and Capture teams, focusing on the strategic recruiting efforts for Obsidian's new programs.

  2. What has been one of your proudest moments while working with Obsidian? I'd say one of the most proudest moments is the recognition and support leadership and my teammates give me everyday. It's a special group and couldn't have asked for a better (almost) 9 years here!

  3. What is your favorite way to spend the weekend? If I'm not running around with my 4 year old Brittany Spaniel, Millie, or working on DIY house projects with my fiance, you can find me on a golf course somewhere. There's nothing better than an early round, blue skies, fresh-cut grass, birds chirping!

  4. What are your 3 favorite bands/artists? What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? Dave Matthews Band, A Tribe Called Quest, and Led Zeppelin or the Grateful Dead, in no particular order. The best concert I ever been to was the "United We Stand" concert at RFK Stadium in DC, in October 2001, paying tribute to the victims of September 11. Michael Jackson was the headliner and played Man in the Mirror for 15+ minutes.

  5. What ranks number one on your bucket list? Playing a round of golf at Augusta National is number one on my bucket list. Something a bit more realistic would be attending the Masters Tournament, and playing Pebble Beach (CA) and/or St Andrews in Scotland.
