In 1995 I earned a B.S. degree with Highest Honors in Liberal Arts and Technology: Computers, from Stevenson University, formerly Villa Julie College. I completed most of my college degree as a part-time student while working full-time, after taking a hiatus after graduation from Glenelg High School in Glenelg, Maryland.
A rich variety of experiences have led to my candidacy for County Council. I run a publishing company and website development business. As a small business owner, I understand the difficulties they face when large corporations have more power than ever to eliminate competition. I revitalized the nearly defunct Mid-Atlantic Book Publishers Association when I was its President, and I’m currently the Vice-President of the Cybils Awards, a nonprofit children’s literature award. In recent years, my focus has been progressive political activism. I’m on the Board of Directors for Get Money Out - Maryland and I founded the Baltimore County Progressive Democrats Club. I was on the steering committee of the Our Revolution Baltimore City/County Chapter.
