Why do you love Richmond?

I love Richmond because of the people who make up this city. It is all about the people whose endeavors make this metropolitan area so successful, beautiful, diverse, and culturally driven.

What’s your favorite thing to do in Richmond?

Take my daughter to explore all there is to see, eat, and experience.

What do you do here?

I'm a former corporate accountant, current Realtor, and am running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia's fourth Congressional district.

What’s your favorite restaurant?

Siam Paragon in Midlothian and Pho So 1 in the near West End.

What would you tell somebody who has never been to Richmond before?

Go seek out the historic aspects of Richmond. I never really paid much attention to history until I was surrounded by it living here.

What's your favorite store?

I don't like shopping, but I'd have to say all of the great cooking stores we have here and everything in Carytown. I prefer local boutique shops.

How do you spend your free time?

Free time? What's that? I like to play sports.

My neighborhood.

How do you describe your community?

I've loved getting to know my neighbors. We help each other when possible. We respect one another's property.

Anything else you would like to add?

I am "part gay". I love so many people in my life who are a part of the LGBT community and each one of them owns a different part of my heart. Their ownership over my life experience has been invaluable to my existence and any way I can help support my brothers and sisters in this world, I will try my best, regardless of their romantic preference.
