Born in Norfolk, raised in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach, I am proud to be a true local. My family roots run deep in this area, and I would one day like to trace the family history back to its origins in Europe. Though my interests are varied, I have always been fascinated by trains. My dream is to have a model train that winds its way through the entire house, but somehow doubt it will ever reach that extreme. I am a big Star Trek fan and also enjoy music, movies, the occasional good book, and socializing with friends.
