What Brought you to the area?
My love affair with money started when I was a teenager. After I graduated from college in the small town of Emmitsburg, I headed up to the city of Baltimore with only an old car, a low limit credit card and no job. I quickly found work at a liquor store to make ends meet and, luckily, I quickly landed my first “career” job with a small investment advisory firm much like Chesapeake Financial Advisors. This provided the foundation for a successful career in valuing businesses and making smart, long-term investment decisions for clients.
