A little bit about me.

I was born in the small town of Walla Walla, but pretty much grew up and spent most of my life here in the Tri-Cities. After graduating high school I lived a couple years down in Santa Cruz, CA to get a different taste of life. I had a wonderful time down in California but due to my lack of talent in being an artist and my failed career as surfboarder due to my fear of the open water it wasn’t a place to call home. I was able to realize how much I missed the tight-knit community of the Tri-Cities and how amazing of a place it is to settle down and plant some roots near my friends & family.

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?
I like to be active when I can by visiting our local rock-climbing gym, weight lifting and Jiu Jitsu or spending time with friends and family.

What core values drive you?
Honesty: only way to do business and sleep well at night. Reliability: to be there when you need, 24/7. Well maybe up until 9pm at night any day of the week.

Positivity: A mortgage loan can be one of the most stressful experiences in a person life. I like to avoid the stress and have a very enjoyable experience with my clients through the excellent service provided.

What makes you excel in your position?
I love and appreciate the relationships I’ve created during my time in the industry. Those relationships are what keep me excited and dedicated to excelling in my field. I don’t see myself just assisting my clients with a mortgage but assisting them a home.

What is your favorite thing about living in Tri-Cities? 
Food: Porter’s Real Barbecue.

Activities: Golfing at any of our courses. Jiu-Jitsu at Evol Octopus Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Pasco. Rock climbing at The Rock Shop in Kennewick.

Community: Night Market at Columbia Gardens Wine & Artisan.
