I take pleasure in working with people and helping them through the finance process of obtaining a home loan. I also pride myself in and helping people find the perfect mortgage loan to assist individuals reach their financial goals; whether  they are a first time home buyers a move-up buyer, or someone looking to better themselves with a  refinance. I have used multiple loans types including FHA, VA, Utah Housing, Conventional, ARM, USDA to meet those goals of my clients.

In 2010 I graduated from Westminster College with my MBA and in 2005 I graduated with a Bachelor of Art in Finance & Economics with a minor in International Business. I use that knowledge to help other individuals in making financial decisions when purchasing or refinancing a home. By taking time with my clients to go over their short and long term goals; I have been able to aid clients get into a home loan that is perfect for them and their families and at the same time help with stay on track with their short and long term goals

I love spending time with my wife and three beautiful children. As a family we travel any chance we get. Most travel in done in the minivan along with our favorite collection of Disney DVDs.  When time permits you can find me golfing, nothing is more relaxing to me than playing nine holes. I run to stay fit but still have not mastered how to control my sweet tooth; I’m addicted to chocolate.

The team at Academy Mortgage was great to work with. Communication was clear and often. The use of technology to inform me about each step along the way was an innovative tool that helped me be prepared. Their friendly response and heroic efforts to respond to my request to close early were very much appreciated.
