Tell us a little about yourself

I am a married man for almost 40 years to my bride Teri and we have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. I have lived in Cincinnati for all but 4 years of my life, the time when I graduated out of Ohio State University


What is your profession?
I am a business man with 50 years' experience in the business world. I have owned my own businesses in the automotive parts rebuilding industry as well as part ownership in a wholesale and retail automotive industry for over 30 years of that period. I have been in sales for various industries for the last 20 years.


What is your volunteer history?

  • I have volunteered for the Jewish Community Center from 1978 to present day
  • I was on the board at the J for over 20 years and served as VP for 2 of them. I also chaired the Health and Fitness, Development, Programs Committee and Camp Livingston committee chair, over that span.
  • I was on the Camp Livingston Board when it became an independent agency.
  • I was part of the Day of Fun and ran a Bid and Buy Booth for several years of the events assistance.
  • I have chaired and been a part of the Steve Adams JCC Golf Outing for all of the over 20 years it has been in existence.
  • I also participate and part of development in a few Business Networking Groups

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy playing golf, working out exercising, and participating with my grandchildren in their particular activities. I also like to travel with my wife when we can find the time


What is your best dancing asset?
I like to do it, as in Dance


What inspired you to dance for Jewish Family Service?
I was asked by a very charming and lovely young lady who made it hard to refuse. I was out with my wife and probably had a few glasses of wine at the time as well. I also have used Jewish Family Service in the past for business purposes.

What don't we know about you that would make someone want to support you?

I am deeply rooted in our Jewish Community and if my name and participation can help an organization I am in. My family has been a part of the Cincinnati Community for almost 100 years and I look for ways to be able to give back to the community and hopefully help make it strong for future generations.


What did your family say when you told them you were dancing?

You better get out and practice we are sure you'll have some stiff competition.
