Tell us a little about your business.
My business is focused on providing unmatched customer service, professionalism, and care when working with clients. Whether it is your first time buying a home or your fifth time, I am dedicated to finding the best fit for you and your family’s needs. By the end of the process, you’re no longer just a client to me, you’re a friend.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
I would say this year as a whole has been a challenge in its own right. I made the switch from being in the food/bar service industry for years to becoming a licensed REALTOR® and it really turned out to be a blessing in disguise!
Tell us a little about your family.
I got married over the summer of 2020 and that has been the best decision I’ve ever made. My wife and I have two beautiful chocolate labs, and we both come from awesome families. I was born and raised here in Lincoln. My parents still live here in town, and I have two amazing sisters, along with a bunch of in-laws now too!
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
There aren’t any days off in real estate, technically, but when I do have free time I enjoy hanging out with my wife and our friends, watching sports, and trying new craft beers. I also love spending time outside with my dogs!
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
A lot of people who don’t know me super well are probably unaware that I was in a band for four years and worked as a touring musician. That was a very special experience, and I wouldn’t trade that time in my life for anything.
Who inspires you?
My wife is my biggest inspiration and supporter. Seeing her do what she loves every day through teaching kids inspires me to do what I love and be the best I can be.
If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be?
What is your greatest talent that you don’t utilize in your daily work life?
I would say singing is the talent that I have and don’t utilize on a daily basis anymore.
If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be?
The entertainment industry. I am a big music/theatre guy. I did a lot of theatre in high school and college, and I have played music throughout my life. It’d be a dream to be a full-time musician or actor.
What is your favorite TV show?
It’s definitely a toss-up between Breaking Bad or Ozark.
What is your favorite local restaurant?
It would probably have to be Copal Progressive & Mexican Cuisine. It is locally owned and operated by an amazing staff of people who truly care about providing excellent service and authentic Mexican food.
If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be?
The lead singer of Radiohead, Thom Yorke.
