Local Influencers

My influencers on social media are all Weather Service and science guys.


Tysons Corner is the best hands down—so many shops and it seems like it goes on forever. My daughter loves the American Girl store, and my wife’s favorite is Restoration Hardware. For my son and I it’s Under Armour and Game Stop.

Where to Spend a Day Off

When I get a day to spend some time outdoors, I love going to Great Falls. I grew up hiking in that area and love taking my kids there now.

Adrenaline Rush

I really enjoy golfing in NoVA. I do a lot of work with charities and participate in many of the golf tournaments. Army Navy and Lansdowne are two of my favorite spots.

I love taking my wife into Alexandria and walking along the King Street. We like to bar- and restaurant-hop, and we like to try a variety of spots.

Life Motto

Have fun and love what you do.
