While I’m not originally from Virginia, it sure is starting to feel like it. In a couple of years I’ll have lived here for more than half my life. I’m originally from the West and am the 5th generation in my family to live here in the Commonwealth. UVA brought us here and will likely keep us here. I’ve always found that building community and making social connections is a vital part of life. When I’m not working to make Glenmore Life Magazine a great platform for reputable businesses to use, I’m volunteering at Wintergreen Adaptive Sports, teaching Sunday School, playing with my 3 kids, loving my wife, coordinating blood drives and playing most any sport you can think of.
