Having lived in 17 different houses before age 18, he’s been happy to have put down roots in RVA for 33 years.

The Zoghby’s and their friends enjoy hiking, camping, cycling, and eating out. Together they have hiked much of the Appalachian Trail and are now looking forward to taking on the more rugged terrain of the West Coast.
