I was born on Easter Sunday (April 6, 1958), in Danville, Virginia. This remarkably fortunate event has resulted in many blessings being delivered to me. I am an Army brat. That characteristic enabled me to enjoy a life of extensive travel and the pleasure of meeting people from all over the world. I believe that is the reason I have been so successful in developing friendships and business relationships with people of so many diverse cultures.

I have been married to my wife Amy for 31 beautiful years. We have 2 children and 5 grandchildren. I enjoy watching Amy search the beaches of North Carolina and Florida as she perpetually seeks to acquire all the seashells of the world. In my free time I enjoy playing golf, surf fishing on Holden Beach and serving as a sports official for the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.

We love living here in Holden Beach.  We are very proud to be the property managers of Sea Coast Rentals. It is our goal to serve our customers to the best of our ability each day. By the way, we will accomplish that task, and we will “Be Happy… Don’t Worry.”

     I recently moved to Hampstead with my mom in tow, from Dover, Ohio, which is near Ohio’s Amish Country and close to Cleveland.  (We are big Cleveland Indians fans!) I worked in the newspaper business since I graduated, got tired of the cold weather and decided instead of vacationing in southern North Carolina, why not just move there?  Changing careers here in North Carolina has been the best thing I’ve done so far, Sea Coast Rentals has been a great change for me!  In my spare time, I’m working on a fiction novel and enjoy exploring our coastal towns, spending time at our beaches and getting to know the area.
