I was born and raised in Portsmouth and have spent my entire life here except while attending Muskingum University and Cleveland Marshall College of Law. I returned to Portsmouth in 2012 and opened my own law firm.
In my spare time I enjoy golf, reading, running, snowboarding and traveling. I have also spent quite a bit of time remodeling a home I recently purchased and even built on outdoor kitchen on my patio this summer.
My only musical experience was in the fourth grade when I attempted to play the trombone and wanted to be in the band.
My family and I have supported the Red Cross through the years. I believe it is an organization that keeps the end-user of charitable contributions in mind and has been on the front-line of humanitarian aid since its inception.
When asked to participate in Dancing With Our Stars, I welcomed the opportunity to embarrass myself in front of family, friends and even members of the community in hopes that my participation will help raise money for the Red Cross. Dancing with Heather Cate, a 2014 pro dancers, should guarantee a top award!
