About Me

A life long resident of the Tampa Bay area, I graduated from Northeast High School in St Petersburg and the University of South Florida (Tampa). Clients find my knowledge of local neighborhoods and micro-markets invaluable. I earned this expertise in 9 years marketing and advertising for new home builders. Most of my professional life has been in the real estate and construction industries, working for companies that build everything from cooling towers for power plants to sports arenas (Raymond James Stadium and the Ice Palace in Tampa) to large condominium projects to single family homes. 

In my free time, I enjoy Scottish Country Dancing, hiking, photography and travel. As a supporter of Metropolitan Ministries, Sierra Club Tampa Bay, PetPal Animal Shelter and the Museum of Fine Arts, a portion of every closing goes to helping at least one of these fine organizations.
