I moved to Santa Cruz after high school, fell in love with the area, and have never looked back. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from San Jose State in 2001. I worked for many years in the finance industry, trading mutual funds. At the same time, I pursued my artistic passion and started my own business, Santa Cruz Tiki Shack where I carve large tiki statues. Examples of my work are found throughout Santa Cruz and Capitola. I transitioned into Real Estate to assist buyers through the process finding their dream home, and to enable sellers to get the best value in the shortest time frame for their home. I am an avid surfer and mountain biker and I enjoy sharing my knowledge of these sports with my clients. I look forward to guiding you through any real estate transactions, whether to find your perfect home or sell your current property in this beautiful region.
