Loan Offider | NMLS #519219

I have been in the mortgage business for over 5 years and I love what I do. My main goal with every client is to make the mortgage process as smooth and efficient as possible. I understand that buying a home is one of the biggest decisions they will make and I am grateful that I’m able to make that dream become a reality.

When I’m not doing mortgages, I enjoy spending time with my wife of 15 years and our 3 awesome boys. I’m also an avid golfer and love the outdoors.
