Seth is a native Fredericktonian.  He worked for a local family business for 15 years before deciding to venture out on his own.  While juggling a full time business and family, Seth made time to volunteer with the Golden Mile Alliance and still continues his service in the Maryland National Guard where he serves in the reserve component.

What is your greatest professional accomplishment?

Being selected by Window Film Magazine (a national magazine) “Next Generation of Up and Coming Leaders” amongst so many outstanding and well-deserving peers. 

Name one award you are most proud to have received.

Receiving the Army Achievement Medal (AAM). I received the AAM for my service while in Germany.  The AAM is presented in recognition of acts of heroism or meritorious achievements, and is rarely awarded to those serving in the Reserve Component. 

What is your experience with volunteering and civic engagement?

Recently, I served as a board member of the Golden Mile Alliance.  In addition, I am a Sergeant in the Maryland National Guard where I serve in the reserve component. 

What behavior or personality trait do you most attribute to your success and why?

I'm a "what's next" kind of person.  I'm never satisfied with where I am and am always striving for the next goal; I think that constant desire has made me successful.
