“I originated in Youngstown, OH and relocated to Houston, Cleveland, Wichita, and Albany, NY due to job changes and then to Nebo, NC in 2014 looking for a retirement home.

I retired in 2017 as Business Development Manager with Sonoco Products after 24 years. I have always enjoyed working with people and managing projects in the Plastic Injection Molding industry, focusing on Food packaging with a goal to innovate functional packaging solutions while reducing the carbon foot print. I am an inventor of 22 independent and joint Patents.

One of my hobbies is restoring an older Porsche 911.  I was also an active Board member for 5 years with the Hudson Champlain Porsche Club in Upstate NY. As Past President and Activities Manager, I was charged with recruiting, growing the club and creating an educational and entertaining club for members. Plus, I created a successful Charity program.  I also helped with Habitat for Humanity, contributing skills in building two houses in Hudson, NY and many other community projects.”
