I was born in Minneapolis and was raised throughout the Midwest. I learned at an early age about the rewards hard work and happy customers can bring as I worked in various sales positions through my high school and college years. My parents taught me to never cut corners and always do the best job possible. Looking back at those years, the life experience I gained was invaluable. After graduating from The Evergreen State College in 1982, I moved to Seattle and was hired as a sales rep for a construction material manufacturer and later a computer software developer. I began my real estate career in 1993 at the Windermere Wedgwood office and have been successfully representing buyers and sellers for over 20 years.

“Straightforwardness and simplicity are in keeping with goodness.” Seneca

I thoroughly enjoy helping homebuyers and sellers who rely on my sage perspective and fresh ideas. I apply the tenets of simplicity, selflessness, and sustainability in my real estate practice as I do in life. It’s all about creating value for my clients. Value in the superior service I deliver, in the education I provide, and in the results I achieve.

In between home sales you'll find me hanging out with my wife Kitty, son Connor, or cats Jupiter and Max. I strive to live life to the fullest, loving with all my heart, being loved by my parents, Kitty and Connor. I also enjoy riding my KTM motorcycle, camping, playing drums, photography, and most of all listening to music (Mozart to Nirvana).
