I graduated from Loyola University in 1989 with a BA in English with a minor in business.  I started a career in corrugated packaging with Tim-Bar and was there for 14 years before moving to Columbia Container in 2003.  I have created many long term relationships in Baltimore and its surrounding areas with a focus on trust and providing value. I reside in Phoenix, MD and enjoy spending time with my wife, 3 kids and 2 dogs. I also enjoy playing golf, reading, and rooting for the Orioles and Ravens.
