outdoorsman with an appreciation for the indoors too


  • Hometown: Suffern, NY
  • Years Living In Wilmington: 15
  • What Brought You To ILM? 
    After 9/11 I was stationed here in North Carolina and I ended up traveling to Wilmington all the time!    When I choose to transition out of the Marine Corps,  Wilmington was the natural choice.

Favorite Spots In Wilmington:

  • Anywhere I can drop a fishing line, kayak or anywhere outdoors... But its hard to beat Fort Fisher 4wd access or Carolina Beach State Park and the feeling it gives of your very own timeless private beach.
  • Driving to the beach on a clear dark night to really take in all the stars off the coast. You'd be surprised of how many more you'll see and what you might catch!

Local Spot Tourists Don't Know About ...

Taking the NC Ferry from Pleasure Island to Southport and back for a quick day trip getaway. Riding the ferry on a perfect coastal NC day gives the sense of mini vacation right here at home... even after 15 years myself. 

Unexpected Facts:

  • I'm a complete weather nerd and fascinated by it all. 
  • Fan of our National Parks System- hitchhiked to the FL keys and backpacked Alaska. Only 8 states left to visit!
  • After the my military service I've done stints as a land Surveyor, Natural Disaster Responder across the country, and local fisherman.
