I am first and foremost a husband and father, and I am blessed to be married to Boonsboro High School graduate Beth Zentmeyer.  We are fortunate to be raising our three young children in Smithsburg near great grandparents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins who live throughout the county.  Along with teaching and coaching my kids, I am a military history buff who enjoys skiing, shooting and working outdoors.  For me, Washington County brings back fond memories of growing up on a farm. 

I hope you'll vote for me to serve you as a Commissioner of Washington County, Maryland.
