I grew up in southern California and studied engineering at UCLA. I first worked for Fluor Daniel, an international engineering company based in Orange County, and then for Qwest Communications in Denver, CO, where I first fell in love with the mountains. Wanting a change from engineering, I went back to school to get an MBA at UC Berkeley and took a marketing job with Intrawest in Mammoth Lakes. Shortly thereafter I got my real estate license and have been practicing real estate full-time ever since (2003). I have found my calling. I love meeting and working with a broad range of people and helping them find the perfect place to enjoy the mountains and all Mammoth offers. On the side, I have always been involved with music and currently play in the Eastern Sierra Chamber Orchestra. My wife and I are also heavily involved with Young Life, a non-denominational outreach ministry for local teenagers. We also enjoy being parents to our three daughters and, when we have time, we enjoy snow sports, hiking and camping.
