Mortgage Loan Originator
Branch NMLS #38686

I am truly honored to be in a role that allows me to help our customers procure financing to buy homes for their families. Contrary to popular belief, the process of assembling everything necessary for a mortgage to come together is no easy task. My job is to demystify the process for you while properly handling your mortgage loan request in a professional, respectful, and timely manner.
 
I began my lending career in 1997, working for a bank my senior year of college. I have been proudly serving my customer’s business and consumer lending needs in one way or another ever since. I have worked in all areas of finance but now focus on home mortgage lending in Central Texas. I grew up in Fort Worth and moved to Austin over a decade ago. I have called the Lake Travis area home since 2004.
 
I earned my Bachelor’s from the University of North Texas in Denton, and my MBA from LeTourneau University in Longview. In my spare time I enjoy reading, teaching, and mentoring opportunities. I also enjoy hiking, biking, jogging, camping, and all things outdoors. I am blessed with an amazing wife, two young daughters, and two old dogs.
