My passion for real estate was born out of my own housing search. The buying process has so many facets that I enjoyed - the initial search, the diligence on the property and the negotiation - I was hooked! Buying or selling a home can be an emotional and stressful process. I approach transactions in a level-headed, practical and highly analytical way to best serve my clients' needs.
I moved to the Bay Area from my home state of Tennessee in 2006. I was a professional cyclist in pursuit of mild winters and a great roads to train on. What I found - the striking beauty of the Pacific coastline, brilliant people with an energy to make things happen and a year round bounty of amazing, locally grown foods - made me want to stay and call the Bay Area home.
After graduating from Vanderbilt University with a BA in History, I spent six years racing with several professional teams domestically and with the US National team in Europe. The bike continues to be an important part of my life - I love riding up and down the peninsula with my wife Ali and our friends.
We live in Portola Valley where we spend as much time outside as possible, tending to our kids, chickens and our garden.
