If you’re looking for an agent who can bake award-winning chocolate chip cookies, can give you John Mayer’s cell phone number from 2002 AND can help you find your perfect route to buying, selling or renting - you’ve found her!

As you may have guessed, I didn’t take the direct path to my career in real estate. After growing up on the Texas Gulf Coast, I studied journalism at The University of Texas at Austin. I fell in love with our city in its “Keep It Weird” heyday and have been amazed but not at all surprised by the extraordinary growth of the last 20+ years.

After almost a decade as a music and lifestyle journalist, I moved to the nonprofit sector and served as communications coordinator for a nonprofit that supports at-risk kids and families. I like to stay busy, so I started a business making chocolates and other desserts in my free time. My part-time gig soon took over my life, and I was fortunate enough to run my own bakery and café in Southwest Austin for almost 10 years. 

I decided to join my wife, Janessa, in real estate after closing my shop because it felt like the perfect way for me to continue serving my community. JB Goodwin is such a supportive, service-driven company, and that perfectly tracks with the course of my professional life. I love connecting with people, helping others and using my skills of investigation, communication and problem solving to make life better. (And my open houses have the best snacks!)

When I’m not working, you can find me hanging out with my family, volunteering at my daughter’s middle school, cultivating my huge collection of cacti and tropical plants or soaking up live music, theater or comedy around town. 

My road to JB Goodwin has been long and winding, but I believe every step has made me a better ally for my clients. I can’t wait to work with you!
