I first came to Santa Cruz in 2004 to pursue a degree in history at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Throughout college and following graduation I worked in building maintenance and construction, gaining a first hand understanding of real estate repair and development. In 2014 I formed Wagon Wheel Workshop, a company focused on rapid invention and prototype creation. Becoming a realtor was my next step toward helping others find success and independence in the Bay Area. My primary goal is to bring increased affordable housing opportunities to people in the Santa Cruz Mountains; I love it here! Whenever possible I go camping in the backcountry with my wife and dog.
