Why we should work together
I was raised in New Jersey, but my heart has always been on the West Coast. After attending St. Lawrence University in Upstate New York, I made my way to Lake Tahoe, where I met my wife Jenna, and never looked back. We found our way to Portland and enjoyed a wonderful 8 years there, but after welcoming two boys to the world, Hudson and Maverick, we knew we wanted to raise them in the mountains, so we made the move to Bend in 2021 and immediately felt at home.
After a decade in the sports business in various sales, marketing, client relations and project management positions, I knew it was time to make a change and time to help people. So I made the leap to the mortgage industry in 2020 and have been very fortunate to partner with my father, Tom, who has been in the industry for 29 years—the last 7 with loanDepot. Together we helped over 200 families with their home financing in my first two years in the industry.
I pride myself on getting to know each and every client and delivering custom-tailored service with each interaction. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach in the mortgage world. From initial contact to closing, I’m involved in every step of the process, with the singular goal of creating a happy client for life. I want your experience to be enjoyable, seamless and educational. Mortgages are not intuitive, and I would love to help.
Please reach out at the contact information on this page. I’m available anytime, and would love to get to know you.
If you’re local to Bend, I’d love to meet up. You can often find me and the family snowboarding at Mt. Bachelor or at any of the world-class mountain biking trails, golf courses and breweries scattered across our beautiful landscape.
