I have been a Real Estate Broker on the Monterey Peninsula for 18 years and resident for over 29 years. After attending the University of Hawaii I worked in travel industry management with Sheraton Hotels Hawaii developing management skills to best serve the staff and our patrons. My dedication to customer service transcended to real estate producing over $600,000,000 in sales and many happy customers. With proven expertise in using technology & crafted marketing collateral I develop the pricing strategies and digital marketing delivery to exceed the expectations of my clients. Together with Compass all clients are supported with an advanced marketing team and strong transaction department to better serve and protect my clients.

My wife and I have raised our family on the Monterey Peninsula and know and love the cities that comprise the Monterey Peninsula. Both of our boys have dedicated their studies to engineering with the oldest graduating in 2016 with a mechanical engineering degree and the youngest is a senior in college studying civil engineering. I love the outdoors and am an avid tennis player, golfer, surfer, hiker, and disc golf player. There are many restaurants I like to frequent on the Central Coast and would love to share with you the experiences of living on "the peninsula". I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
