I bring ten years of experience in real estate, excellent customer service and a commitment to work hard, listen and follow through. I provide quality service to build relationships with clients and more importantly, maintain those relationships by communicating effectively.

As a principal in a real estate investment and development group over the past 10 years, I've been responsible for overall leadership, growth, direction, cash management and strategic planning for a number of real estate projects, and I know how to maximize positive outcomes for all of the parties involved in the transaction. My projects have included minor-land subdivisions, urban infill projects, affordable housing, condo and townhouse projects, planned developments, tax credits, residential projects, and the only conservation bank in Santa Cruz County. I have worked with Federal, State, County, and City elected officials on land use planning, planned development, zoning, permitting, conservation law, community involvement, and environmental and ecological assessment.

I consult with many real estate professionals, attorneys, architects, civil engineers, surveyors, financial institutions, investors and contractors to verify design studies, plans and cost estimates; this experience makes me effective in studying and evaluating real estate property, raw land and/or rehab for residential or commercial use. My experience developing available market studies with local, state, and federal planning organizations ensures finding the best use for a property. I collaborate with local green building manufacturers and contractors to implemented sustainable building practices in development projects.

I have lived in Santa Cruz County for 25 years and enjoy family, my wife and two daughters, hiking in the Santa Cruz mountains, road and mountain biking, golf and guitar.
