Have been an avid sports enthusiast and outdoors person. Enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, vacationing. Currently active with the National Association of Sporting Clay shooters, which is a shotgun sport discipline. I act as head coach of the Scholastic youth clay target program for Seattle Skeet and Trap Club. I work with elementary to college age kids to introduce the sport and varying disciplines through safe and fun interaction, and compete as a team unit in regional and national scholastic shoots.

My Philosophy

Mortgage lending guidelines have been a moving target over the last several years so it is more important than ever that you work with a loan officer that understands the changes, providing you with sound advise about your financing options. I like to approach every client by looking at their long term financial goals and how your mortgage fits into that plan. All of us have needs that vary so understanding your specific situation gives me the ability to help structure your mortgage in a way that works for you. I believe that if you build a relationship on honesty, trust and service you will have a strong relationship that spans your lifetime.

Personal Quote

"The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor." - Vince Lombardi


I have a long and successful employment history in the finance and mortgage industries. My background supports a proven organizational ability and commitment to quality customer service that has contributed to corporate goals and consumer satisfaction. I have been highly successful in management, training, compliance and sales positions. I found a true appeal to helping consumers with mortgage financing and find the most benefit working with point of sale clients. Originally, I began my career in consumer finance, then moved to wholesale mortgage origination and branch ownership. I've been active in the industry for 27 years, the last 13 here with CMG Financial.
