For 26 years, I have been proud to call Manassas home.
While my family history is firmly planted in Texas, I am a product of the Midwest. Born in Dodge City, Kansas, my family and I lived throughout the central part of the country as my father climbed the corporate ladder. My high school years were spent in Ankeny, Iowa. I attended the University of Iowa, graduating with a BA degree in Political Science and History.
After Iowa, I attended Law School at Southern Methodist University long enough to realize that I did not want to practice law but long enough to meet and court a dancer from Buffalo named Amy Grant. In 1981, after Amy received her Masters degree in Dance, we were married. I began my own business career while Amy danced professionally in Texas. Two children followed, Colin in 1986 and Cece in in 1990.
1990 also brought us to Manassas when I accepted a promotion to the DC area. Manassas has been our home ever since.
