Favorite Part of Tom Tom
It has to be the block parties – there is such an energetic and creative vibe, it’s amazing!

Interests and Involvements
As the Business Development Manager for the City of Charlottesville, I assist people in starting a new business in town. When I’m not at work, I’m spending time with my wife and three kids. Enjoying all parts of the Charlottesville area – great restaurants, events, and outdoor amenities. And of course, watching my favorite football team on Saturday afternoons in the Fall – Roll Tide!
