I’ve always had a great passion for serving the needs of others and doing my best to contribute to the community. My first outlet to serve was in the United State Marine Corps from 1993 to 1997. I was lucky enough to be stationed in 29 Palms, CA the entire time and had a safe and rewarding experience. After my service, I became a Financial Planner for American Express and served the needs of businesses and individual’s financial goals. In this role I found myself drawn to people whose mortgages were in dire straits due to poor debt management skills or a lack of understanding. In 2000 I made it my mission to use my planning skills to help folks obtain a mortgage properly—whether it is through a refinance or purchase of real estate.

Recently, I have witnessed some extraordinary changes that have turned the lending world upside down. The ability to align myself with a strong company like Mortgage Express is instrumental in me helping families get the right mortgage. Through Mortgage Express I can offer you an array of mortgage programs. All of our underwriting, processing and functions of mortgage finance are done in house. If you’ve ever worked with a bank, you’ll know the difference! I take great pride in my work and am available to serve you.

I currently reside in Aurora, with my wife Kerry. And a Father to my son Tyler and daughter Morgan. Being a committed husband and dedicated father for my children is arguably one my most important roles in life. When I am not working, I spend time with my family, enjoy outdoor activities, love to travel and volunteer in the community. Sometimes I even hack my way through a golf game!
