What are some things you are passionate about outside of work?

Food-both exploring fun restaurants and cooking new recipes at home! Also anyone who knows me, knows I am one of the biggest Oregon State fans out there.  You can also find me walking along the South Waterfront almost daily; I love my neighborhood and staying active!

A fun travel experience?

After college, I traveled to 9 different countries in 30 days and had the time of my life.  My favorite place was Switzerland by far and I went paragliding there; it was so beautiful and I can’t wait to hopefully visit again.

Do you have any pets?

My parents have a very fluffy chow chow, but I dream about getting a pup of my own someday.

Guilty pleasure?

Rewatching The Office and Friends over and over. And does wine tasting count?

What brought you into Real Estate?

I love creating relationships with people and nothing excites me more than having the opportunity to help others and to show off the beautiful homes that Portland has to offer.


Favorite Portland neighborhood?

As a Portland native, its hard to choose. My current neighborhood is the Pearl District, specifically the Brewery Blocks. I’ve lived there for a combined 7 years, and I love having some of the city’s best beer restaurants right outside my door.

Best place you’ve ever been?

Portland of course! But, Vietnam is a very close second. The people, the food, the constant buzz of scooters and commotion… I can’t get enough, and I can’t wait to go back.

Greatest accomplishment?

I practically grew up on a bike with my Dad. My first memory is riding in the back of a Burley trailer, and till this day we go on week-long cycling trips together. As a result, I have camped in over 80 different towns in Oregon, and ridden through many more. Having experienced all of Oregon, including the places far off the beaten path, is something that I am very proud of. We are truly fortunate to live in such a beautiful state.

How would your friends describe you?

Always laughing.

One thing most people don’t know about you?

I own a horse, and competively horseback ride. It’s my absolute favorite thing to do.


Where can we find you when you are not working?

You can find me kitesurfing, cycling, wine tasting, or spending the day with my wife and young son hiking in the Columbia River Gorge.


What most excites you about your work and the contribution you make?

I enjoy getting to know people and developing friendships with our clients and community.  It has been incredible to watch how our “work” has transcended into personal friendships and a deeper meaning to our clients and community than just selling homes…I find what we do everyday to be very rewarding!


Favorite Food and Beverage?

I love any type of Mexican food!  I also happen to love Oregon wines….


Favorite Place to Travel To?

Hood River, Baja, and anywhere outside of the U.S.  My family and I love to see the world!


Why Real Estate?
