I have been a music teacher in Oregon for thirty years. I attended the University of Montana, Wheaton College Graduate School, and the University of Oregon. I have worked summers as a geologist in Montana and Nevada. My roots are as a farm boy in the dry, rocky, hills and valleys of the Missouri Ozarks. There I experienced through perseverance and hard work the pride and joy that result from being a steward of a valued piece of property.
My wife, Naomi, and I have enjoyed homeownership in Corvallis and Salem. Few things beat the joy of working to improve your own piece of real estate. It is great to think that I can help you with your real estate needs and dreams.
We have four married children and nine grand-children. My wife and I enjoy gardening, hiking, and visiting the kids. We volunteer with the Santiam Pass Ski Patrol. I am an active rock climber, mountaineer, and outdoor photographer and videographer. I have almost climbed Mt. McKinley twice – does that count?
