I am a lifelong resident of Montgomery County and the State of Maryland; I grew up in Bethesda and moved to Montgomery Village, where I currently live with my wife, Joyce Kraus Dyer, a lifelong resident of Montgomery County and the State of Maryland as well.

In 2010, Joy and I welcomed a third generation Montgomery Village resident and a fourth generation Montgomery County resident, with the birth of our son, Joseph. As a homeowner raising a family here, this is where our family will continue to live for generations to come, and I have a vested interest in the future of the Village.
