A Bit About Me

Favorite Memory at Norcom:  My years as an Executive, including becoming President.

 Favorite Quote: The paraphrase  "Love others as Christ loved us"  John 13:34 and saying, "Always treat others as you would want to be treated"


 Favorite Teacher/Admin at Norcom: English teacher - Evelyn Sawyer.


What's your professional background/what do you do for a living, and how long have you been doing it?  Electrician, Technician (4yrs - Newport News Shipbuilding), Technician, Engineer (retired as Operations Specialist- Dominion Energy- 42yrs)

What advice would you give your teenage self? Learn about money and finance earlier.


What was the first concert you ever attended? 

It's been so many that I can't recall the first. I will share that the first real one in Portsmouth was "Earth, Wind and Fire," performed in the Frank D. Lawrence Stadium, located on the site of the new Norcom.

Favorite memory or favorite place to visit in Portsmouth? See the previous question for my favorite memory.

Your Pet Peeve: Persons that profess Christ that are inherently racist and attempts to justify it.

Guilty Pleasure: Sweets and more sweets: ice cream, cookies, and cakes.
