  • Where are you from originally?

    Native of California, raised outside of Washington D.C. area and have lived in Texas since 2007. Guess you could say I got here as fast as I could. I love Austin!

  • What is your favorite Podcast?

    The Buck Sexton Show for insightful and intelligent commentary with a dash of humor and storytelling. Highly recommended for deep thinkers.

  • Tell us an interesting detail about you that many might not know?

    I enjoy listening to and collecting vinyl records. Wide range of genres with love for 60s surf and psychedelic rock, 70s funk and soul, 80s pop and boogie, 90s hip-hop and plenty of 2000-era indie rockers. It is not uncommon to find me digging through the new arrivals or crates of vintage oldies at your local Austin record store.

  • What is your favorite Model, Floorplan or Feature?

    Have you seen the Monticello Homes model at Deerbrooke? This Newton plan has a contemporary feel with an outstanding open-concept design. You cannot beat the experience in-person but to tour virtually visit: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=xp525s5vwG2

  • How did you get into homebuilding?

    I became a licensed Realtor in 2014 and it opened my eyes to the homebuilding industry and the tremendous growth happening in the Austin market. Just a short time later I accepted an assistant sales role with a homebuilder working out of a trailer in a brand-new SE Austin subdivision. Fast forward less than 1 year later and our 56 homesites in the first section have sold out. I am grateful for the experience as it helped chart the career path I am on today.

  • What do you love about homebuilding?

    The best part about my job is meeting new people and discovering what is important to them. Every person is unique and has a different perception of value. I enjoy weaving the overall presentation of our beautiful home product to match the things that are meaningful to our prospective buyers. I would not trade this job for any other!

  • What is the best advice you have ever been given?

    “Attitude is everything.” Dad taught me that one. The definition of attitude is “a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person’s behavior.” Assuming life is a sort of feedback loop, wouldn’t it behoove all of us to sow seeds of positive expectation leading to (eventual) success? However long it may take to accomplish my dreams, I will move that direction and I will not give up. Thanks Dad.

  • What is one thing you want people to know about your community?

    Deerbrooke is off the beaten path with homes nestled amongst mature trees yet remains close to many conveniences. The Northline project and development of surrounding area make this community prime for future appreciation. Our Amenity Center offers something for everyone.  Deerbrooke is worth a visit!
