As a mortgage loan officer since 2002, I am passionate about creating successful lending transactions for both my refinance and purchase clients.  A trusted advisor to both industry partners and clients, my team and I make the mortgage process easy to understand for the consumer. We provide an educational experience with a high level of service and a culture that is ‘client-centric,’ which puts all parties in a transaction at ease.

My work ethic and determination to match borrowers with the correct program has earned me the distinction of a “Five Star Professional” mortgage lender as featured in Portland Monthly Magazine for in excess of consecutive years.  I easily relate to each client and real estate broker as their lending partner by providing constant communication throughout the process.

A native Oregonian, I was born and raised in Salem. Attending the University of Oregon, I played football as an Offensive Lineman with the Ducks and graduated with a BS in Psychology. Married to my college sweetheart, Alice, we have two boys who all currently attend Tualatin High School with my oldest on College at the University of Oregon. I give back to the community through a number of initiatives. I previously coached youth football and have served as a board member for Tualatin High School Quarterback club .

When not helping clients with their mortgage financing, I enjoy boating, participating in my children’s activities, camping, and working out.
