About Me

If you’re in the market to buy or sell a home, you’ve come to the right place.  Whatever your real estate needs, I can help you reach your goals with confidence.  While visiting my website, you can access the most current real estate data and search for homes throughout the Western U.S.  And when the time is right, feel free to contact me so that I can put the power of Windermere to work for you.

I was born and raised in White Bear Lake, Minnesota where I lived with my family, parents Clarke and Mary and 3 younger sisters Krissy, Ashellee and Emily until I joined the Marine Corps in 1999.  I grew up heavily involved in sports and the outdoors, my passions were hockey, baseball, golf, hunting and fishing.

My sales career began right out of high school at a regional tire and service company Tires Plus. My no nonsense, direct approach to sales quickly made me a favorite among new and return customers while impressing the management.  I was quickly promoted to Assistant Manager and was on the fast track to Manager when I decided I wanted to serve at a greater level.

I joined the Marine Corps in April of 1999, went to boot camp, combat training and attended the structures and hydraulics course in Pensacola FL and was assigned to HMLA-169 on Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton.  I deployed to Afghanistan in 2001/2002 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraq in 2003 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.  Upon my return I was assigned to HMX-1/VX-9 in Patuxent River, MD where I served as a member of the H-1 Upgrades Operational Test Team which subsequently tested and delivered the new 4 bladed Huey and Cobra aircraft to the fleet!

My interest in real estate began as a first time home buyer where I had an awful experience with a less than reputable agent.  I knew my passion for discipline, integrity and service above self would be a great fit with my significant existing network in the real estate world.  In my first year of my real estate career, I sold 28 homes in North San Diego and Southern Riverside Counties.

I currently live in North Escondido with my lovely wife Bethany and our 3 girls Arianna, Sienna and Elaina.
