When I started my mortgage career five years ago, I knew I wanted to share my passion for finance and teach others how to use real estate to build long-term wealth.

It didn't take me long to realize how rewarding it was to help families find solutions to fit their needs, whether this was their first home, next home, or they were building their dream house. I know the home buying process can be complex and intimidating, that is why I’m motivated to guide families every step of the way. Timely advice and accurate answers are some of the best ways that I can help members.

My wife and I enjoy hiking and spending time outdoors. As an avid sports fan, my favorite team is the Seattle Seahawks. I'm also a fan of our hometown Huskies, and I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Environmental Science and Restoration Ecology.

Important things to understand before getting started:

  • An application is a formal request for a loan.
  • A prequalification is a request for "a preliminary determination" on the amount the requestor would likely qualify for, and how much that credit would likely be.  A prequalification is not a loan.
