Why I wish to serve Sea Pines:
It pains me to see the current divisiveness in our community.  I believe all of us have much more in common than not.  Sea Pines and I go back a long way – to 1973 when I worked for the Sea Pines Community, Brandermill, in Richmond, VA.  The concept of a master-planned community with innovative and ecologically motivated design has stayed with me since those early days.

As property owners, we have a vested interest in the success of Sea Pines.  This community has been through tough times, e.g. resort ownership changes, bankruptcy, etc.  My perspective includes our history as well as hopes for the future.  I bring analytical skills coupled with a strategic vision and tactical execution experience to make plans happen.  I am a common sense, level-headed person with a priority towards inclusion.  And I believe our residents would benefit from more education about our gated community.
