Raised on the east coast, my wife Eileen and I discovered Portland on a family visit over twenty years ago and quickly decided it was a great alternative to the New York commuter lifestyle. Oregon has been a wonderful place to raise our three children and become part of so many communities through our kids’ schools, our parish, volunteering and enjoying the outdoors in the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy the camaraderie of annual horseback trail rides in California and Oregon, hiking, fishing, family time and supporting St. Andrew Nativity School. I am excited to apply my 20+ years experience in insurance sales and business development to representing buyers and sellers in SW Portland and in the Oregon Vineyard space at Cascade Sotheby’s. Landing multi-million dollar advertising clients and helping dozens of employers navigate escalating health insurance costs and shrinking benefits has taught me the value of being a trusted advisor and an excellent communicator. I have a CNE designation as a Certified Negotiation Expert.
