He loves shaking hands and participating in local charity events and community fundraisers. He believes that you can’t be a true mover and shaker without giving back to the community.

Mell is also an established Mortgage Loan Officer at Homestead Funding Corp., the number one independent residential mortgage lender in the Capital Region.
