It all started with hard work, a man, and the help of his strong devoted family. He came from modest beginnings on the eastern shore of Virginia where his father was a watermen. His decision to settle in DC at the Wharf in the nations capitol came to him after selling crabs and other various wholesale items around the metropolitan area. With an honest work ethic, a loyal customer base, and the confidence from local watermen he was able to not only create a thriving business here on the wharf but also create a way a life for future generations.
