I grew up in the small town of St. Helena, in the heart of the Napa Valley. I attended college for a year at Humboldt State University and then at Chico State University. While at Chico, I studied and helped to teach classes in the Outdoor Leadership and Education program. After college, I worked as a climbing guide in the Yosemite area, worked at the Culinary Institute of America back in St. Helena, and as a private ski instructor and children’s program director at Sugar Bowl on Donner Summit.
Coming from a small town, I understand the importance of professionalism, trust, ethics and follow-through in a working relationship. I perform very well under pressure and represent my clients with intelligence, creativity, and a positive approach to the buying and selling process. Friends and family appreciate my quick wit, sense of humor, and attention to detail. Having been in the Truckee/Tahoe area for 11 years, I have an in-depth knowledge of the area from Lake Tahoe to Truckee to Donner Summit.
Donner Lake in Truckee is now my home that I share with my wife, Jessica and our baby boy Townes. Together we manage a very successful vacation rental. Truckee has become the perfect balance for me. The Truckee/Tahoe area offers abundant recreational opportunities in an alpine environment the whole year round, is large enough to have all the perks of a large town, and is small enough that running into people you know is commonplace and brings a smile to my face every day!
When I am not working, I can be found downhill and telemark skiing in the winter time or out on a walk, bike ride, rock climbing, gardening, or out in my boat on Donner Lake during the summer time…with Jess and Townes, of course.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you for years to come!
