After graduating from the Naval Academy, I was an Aircraft Maintenance Officer and served with the P-3 squadrons in Brunswick, ME. After five years, i transferred to the reserve community and worked in the private sector at Texas Instruments until Sep 11, 2001 when I was recalled to active duty for a couple years to support security operations for the Navy's Northeast region. Upon deactivation, I became a security specialist for the Northeast Region until taking on a new position with a government contracting agency. In 2008 i decided to purchase a franchise and since September of 2008 have owned a Mr. Handyman franchise in the Northern Virginia area.
