As an advocate for you, the realtor or client, it is my joy and responsibility to care for your needs and/or business reputation. It is my goal to get to know you as a person, as I strongly believe in building a real relationship with you. At Willamette Valley Bank, we work hard, know our products, and do our best to communicate as well as listen and be sensitive to the voice of our partners and clients. Having taught High School Latin for over twenty years, I came to appreciate advocating those whom I represent. Thus, no matter the time zone, no matter situation, I want to be fully engaged on behalf of you and your dreams.
Born in Washington and raised Idaho, I graduated from Coeur d’Alene HS in 1990. I then embarked on an odyssey to California where I met my wife, Debra, who is from Honolulu, Hawaii. We have two daughters, Claire Risa and Maile Rei Ann. We bought a house here in 2016, and it brings us a lot of joy to be near my parents and my youngest brother, Steve, and his family.
Reading, exploring the outdoors, travelling, spending time with family and friends, watching soccer, and learning about cultures and their culinary offerings are among my passions. Now that I have returned to Coeur d’Alene permanently, I am excited to throw my heart and mind into this Northwest Community as a professional and as a person.
