This entry is part 34 of 37 in the series New Member Spotlight

Tell the church little about yourself and your family:

I am from New Jersey, and my wife is from New York.  I met my wife at a July 4 picnic in 2002, and we married six months later.  The journey to have children took some time, but we are now blessed with two wonderful children: our daughter Evelyn (6) and son Broderick (21 months).

What brought you to Blacksburg?

Our business, Inorganic Ventures relocated from NJ in 2008 with the help of State and Regional groups like The NRV Economic Development Alliance, now called Onward NRV.

Why are you excited about being the church with Northstar?

There is a true dedication to communicating and developing healthy and loving relationships with each other, the community and of course, Jesus Christ.  We are excited how God will use us in a church that is so dedicated to serving by being the church.

What are your favorite hobbies?

 Friday Family Fun Night!  Cookies, popcorn, bad food, movies, and games! Whatever makes a good family memory.
