I came to Manassas 40 years ago. My wife Gina and I raised two wonderful children here. Both graduated from Osbourn High School, went on to college and enjoy thriving careers.
I am a proud graduate of George Mason University. For much of my career I served as CEO of Didlake, Inc., headquartered in Manassas. Under my leadership, Didlake’s annual revenue grew from $65,000 to $65,000,000. When I retired it served more than 1,000 people with disabilities daily in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. It is one of the largest social enterprises of its kind in the country.
I had the opportunity to serve Governors, legislators and Cabinet Secretaries on committees and task forces. Locally, I was appointed to the Manassas Business Council, the Norther Virginia Workforce Investment Board and the Adult Basic Education Planning Council.
