    Sometimes things have to be taken away from us before we can truly appreciate their value...

    I was born and raised in the Lake Tahoe Area. I was a student in the Truckee schools from K-12. Having grown up here, like many other kids, I couldn't wait to get out into the 'real world.' I had dreams of the bright lights and big city. After graduation from Truckee High School I was accepted into UCLA. I was ecstatic to be moving to the city, with all of the people, opportunities, and hustle and bustle. I am very proud of the things I learned and achieved while living in Los Angeles. I graduated from UCLA in 1998 with a degree in Math and Economics. My friends and I started our own fraternity, which has continued to prosper and is now our legacy on the UCLA Campus. I worked for a total of three years as a financial advisor for two Fortune 100 Corporations, Lincoln Financial Group, and Merrill Lynch.

    However, through all of these achievements I began to realize something was missing from my life. It took 8 years of living in Los Angeles to realize what a treasure the Lake Tahoe area is. There is no other place in the world like it. I now choose to live surrounded by the most beautiful mountains, lakes, and rivers in the world. I have access to world-class ski areas in the winter and world-class golf courses in the summer. I can go kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, fishing, etc., all at a moments notice. And, after a day filled with all these indulgences, I can enjoy a cool evening sitting on my deck, drinking a Guinness, and staring at the most beautiful, star-filled, sky I have ever seen.

    I moved back to Truckee in October of 2001. I'm now lucky enough to be living in paradise and working with my father, who has been a Real Estate Agent in the area since 1984. His experience and knowledge is invaluable to both clients and myself. Mix in a little of my youthful enthusiasm and you have a perfect duo to guide you through buying or selling a home. I'm very excited about having the opportunity to share my love of the place I live with you. When I was young I asked myself why someone would ever want to live in Truckee. Now I ask myself why anyone would live anywhere else.

    If you feel like something is missing in your life, there is nothing more rewarding than taking a break in these mountains.
