Blazon:

Arms:  Per chevron gules and barry wavy argent and azure, in chief two dogwood flowers (cornus florida) proper and in base a cross of Saint Chad of the first.

Crest:  A cardinal’s head erased clutching in its beak a Madonna lily (lilium candidum) seeded proper.

Motto:  Ich Mache Rechte

Badge:  Three Madonna lillies (lilium candidum) seeded proper enfiled by a coronet of dogwood flowers (cornus florida) and fleurs-de-lis Or. (see Other Items & Honors below)

Design Rationale:

The main charge, the cross of Saint Chad, refers to the armiger's patron saint, St. Chad of Litchfield and his pursuit of religious studies. The dogwood flowers are from the state flower of Virginia, the armiger's home state. The barry wavy represent the waters where the armiger and his family enjoy many hours of fishing in states of Virginia and West Virginia, also represented by the red of the shared state bird in crest, the Northern Cardinal (cardinalis cardinalis). The Madonna lilly in the crest represents the armiger's devotion to Our Lady as found in his favorite depiction, Our Lady of Walsingham.

The motto honors the armiger's German heritage.
