Hello, and thank you for taking the time to learn about me.

While I am not a native Texan, I have lived in Austin for over 20 years and have no interest in ever leaving.  Over the years, I have lived in New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Arizona and of course, Texas.  As you can see, I have moved my family across the country twice and have bought and sold several homes in each state, but our love for Austin and all it has to offer has kept us stable for over two decades.

Before becoming a Realtor®, I had a 30+ year career in high technology development and sales. I have successfully served a demanding customer base, including several of the world’s largest OEMs.  I have a Masters degree in Engineering and I hold ten US patents. I have a passion for real estate and architecture and that caused me to move away from technology sales.  I have owned dramatically different types of properties ranging from new construction to homes over 100 years old. I’ve done major and minor renovations. Once I even moved a house from it’s lot to a new location! In addition to that, I have been a tenant and a landlord. All of this means I understand the real estate industry from many different angles and get excited about using that experience to help others navigate their real estate projects.

On a personal note, I am a live music fanatic and I enjoy riding bicycles around the city.  I love spending time with my dogs - a Chinese crested named Taffy and a Great Dane named Layla.   Also, I love anything to do with cars and trucks.  Many people find it interesting that I own two antique trucks and am a pretty good mechanic!
