What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? Currently I’m working on multiple projects specializing in affordable housing solutions for all ages. I plan on continuing to hone my skillset and become increasingly valuable to my clients and firm.

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? I like to unwind by spending time wrenching on, and riding motorcycles. Also, by spending time with my wife Maggie, and two dogs Merle & Duke.

One word to describe your work environment: Challenging

Rules to live by in business: Work hard, be honest, and don’t be afraid to advocate for yourself.  

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go? I suppose it would be my Grandpa M. He passed away a little over 10 years ago, and I’ve had a lot of questions for him since. I imagine we’d just have dinner at the farm.

What is your dream job?  Motorcycle reviewer.  How could it get any better?  Travel the country always riding the newest bikes and getting paid to do it!
