Born in Mesa, I’m the youngest of 7! I grew up in Phoenix, Kansas City, and San Diego before heading off to a 5 year stint in the U.S. Navy most of which was spent on the island of Oahu in Hawaii (rough life, I know). Diving and Surfing were my main hobbies back then. From the Navy, I went to the University of San Diego where I graduated with a Business Degree in 1994. I met my wife at USD and we were married the year we both graduated. The next 13 years I spent between San Diego and the Bay Area working in Telecommunications which eventually lead me to a Silicon Valley Start-up. Growing up, my Dad taught me how to work. Getting ahead by outworking others and doing 110% has always been a mantra in both my personal and professional life. Finding Jesus was the thing that brought balance and grace to that idea and allowed me to direct that energy toward serving others. I’ve always wanted to break out on my own, and family eventually drew me back to Phoenix where I have been blessed to work in Real Estate as both Realtor and Broker since returning to Arizona in 2003. I’ve had the opportunity to help many families along the way to achieve their real estate dreams! On the personal side, I am the proud father of 3 kids (a son and 2 daughters) who all bring me great joy and I’m also an avid cyclist!
