Hometown:
Millburn, NJ; moved to Maryland in 1976.

My Faith Story:
I was adopted as an infant in 1960 by two wonderful Christian, Hungarian immigrants. I was raised Catholic, went to Catholic elementary school, and was an alter boy but I never internalized my faith. Due to some traumatic events starting at the age of 15, I made some poor decisions and strayed from any kind of faith. In 1986, I met Jean and she took me to a Young Life event where I heard how much God loved me and that I could have a personal relationship with Him. Gradually by reading the Bible and attending church regularly, I began to understand God’s love and grace and accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior in 1987.

Family:
Jean (my wife of over 30 years), 3 married children, and 4 grandchildren.

Passion:
My family, Relationships, Celebrate Recovery, basketball

Little-Known Fact:
I had Legg-Perthes hip disease as a child and could not walk from age 8-11.
