My family and I are fortunate to call beautiful Northern Michigan our home.  Being an active member of the community is important to me.  Currently, I serve on the local Special Olympics Polar Plunge Committee.  

My passion is helping others, giving and caring for those around me.  And the real estate industry is my venue.  Since my early days with Marriott International, I have always believed that giving great service is an honorable profession.   I pride myself by going the extra mile for people.  Prior to joining Real Estate One, I worked at Crystal Mountain as the Rooms Division Director. My background in customer service and vast experience in the hospitality industry lends itself well for a career with Real Estate One.

My wife, three children and I are avid enthusiasts of Benzie County and its surrounding areas. We enjoy skiing, beach-going, cycling, water sports and hiking area trails with our two golden retrievers.
