I am a second generation real estate broker whose started in the business by answering the phones in my father's real estate agency while I was in high school. In college I worked for a real estate developer in Portland restoring the corner of Cumberland and High Streets. I started out on the construction side of the business but after earning the nickname 'woodbutcher' it was decided that my talents would be better put to use as the purchasing agent and property manager. It didn't hurt that I was the only one in the company who could turn on a computer and spend hours entering receipts into the accounting software.
After graduation from the University of Southern Maine I spent the next several years in public service at a non-profit legal services organization in Augusta. It took 15 years but eventually I realized that my father had been right and I should get my real estate license.
I have been active in community affairs at the local and state level having served on the Board of Directors for Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Town of Damariscotta's Charter Commission, the Maine Advisory Panel for the Education of Children with Disabilities, and was appointed by the governor's office to the Department of Health and Human Services Reorganization Committee. I am a past President of the Lincoln County Board of Realtors and have served on the Board of Directors of the Maine Association of Realtors. I am currently on the Damariscotta River Association's Board of Trustees.
I love being on the water and exploring the rivers, bays and coves of the midcoast. I currently live in South Bristol with my wife and can often be seen following my two dogs on walks through the neighborhood. I have a grown daughter in Boston and a son in the United States Navy stationed at Pearl Harbor.
