Quality of life, strong sense of community, fantastic weather, and dramatic natural beauty: these are just a few of the reasons why my family calls the Big Island home.

I have been married to my best friend (Jamie) since 2007 and together we have four amazing kids (Matthias, Berit, Haaken, & Ewan), one very old Border Collie (Kona), two weird cats (Elsa & Sweet Baby Rey), and we’re still working on that partridge in a pear tree…

I am originally from the Northwest, but my wife and I decided to raise our family here in 2017 and are so grateful to call the Big Island home! When not helping clients, you can find me running, surfing, hiking, having epic Nerf battles with my kids, spending time with friends, and drinking great coffee or beer (depending the time of day).

In my previous life I was a top-producing loan officer/branch manager for a nationwide mortgage lender for 11 yrs, along with 5 years in construction/project management. Truth-be-told, while on the mortgage side I always secretly wanted to be on this side of the business and now I couldn’t be happier to call Hawaii Life home!

I look forward to serving you!
