About Cville:  This is a great community.  Located in Central Virginia, within Albemarle County, Charlottesville is widely recognized as rich in history and beauty.  It’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, Blue Ridge Mountains and Washington D.C., along with its small town charm are just part of the many attributes…  What do love most about Cville, let us know here

About Me:  My name is Parker, the local account manager of RLC.  Born in Sante Fe, New Mexico, I moved to Charlottesville in 1983, after living in the inner city of Baltimore, Maryland.  Life in this small, quiet community, where drivers yield for pedestrians, seemed like the perfect place to raise a family.  The tradition continues as I bring my own children into this world, with our first-born son in early 2011.

In 2002 I received a Bachelor of Science Degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University.  Immediately afterwards I read the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, which led me to become an avid reader and a student of utilitarian and theoretical interests.  It helped define my path in life, and guide me to become the entrepreneur I am today.

Below, I have listed a few of the books that have helped me along the way.
