I have been an Ames area local for more than 25 years. After graduating from Gilbert, I received a BS in Business Administration from Minot State in North Dakota. After graduating college, I moved back to Iowa where I met my beautiful wife and have been graced with two amazing daughters and son. I am an avid Vikings & Iowa State Fan. My favorite hobbies include basketball, bowling, hunting, and hanging out with friends and family. Of those hobbies, I enjoy basketball the most. I had the opportunity to play college basketball which was a remarkable experience.
When you use me to buy or sell, I give back to the community by donating a portion of my paycheck to United Way of Story County or The Boys & Girls Club of Story County where I have served as president from 2014-2015 and 2015-2016. It has been a true blessing to be able to help out these great organizations.
My real estate career began in 2007 and I joined RE/MAX Real Estate Center in 2010. I was originally raised in Gilbert, and now as a full-time REALTOR®, I serve the needs of the greater Ames and Ankeny areas. Through my dedication to the profession, I have earned many awards and designations. Designations I have earned include: GRI, e-PRO, and CRS (of which only the top 4% of all REALTORS® have).

I am a tech savvy agent that uses a multi-facetted approach to marketing homes including; professional video tours, virtual flyer, highly visible signage, top on-line exposure to high traffic sites, a professional stager, and much more!
