Born and Raised in Salem Oregon, but really I grew up in the halls of the Real Estate Professional's building on south Commercial st. My dad was a very successful Realtor and developer in the business. I spent my childhood going on listing appointments and patiently waiting while he talked with clients. After I graduated from Sprague High School, I studied economics and psychology at the University of Oregon. Being persuaded not to enter the unstable career of a Realtor, I fell back on my summers job as laborer for a plumbing company and entered into the plumber's apprenticeship. At Oregon Cascade Plumbing and Heating I learned commercial and industrial construction. Towards the end of my career in construction, I held positions in the plumbing and pipefitting world as a lead man, foreman, and estimator. I decided to leave the industry in the fall of 2013 to fulfill my life long goal of becoming a Realtor. Shortly there-after, I met my very special person and much better half, Lori, in 2015. We have a daughter now Emilee and she is my reason to be the best I can be. My goals in life is to serve my clients to the best of my ability and to make my daughter proud.
