Born and raised in Portola Valley, I was fortunate enough to grow up right here in the bay area. I didn’t travel too far to attend college at UC Santa Cruz where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science while playing on the NCAA Water Polo and Swimming teams. Immediately after graduation, I came back to the peninsula where I began my career as a middle school and now high school teacher of math and computer science while also volunteering for the National Energy Education Development Project.

Even though I have kept myself very busy, I always knew I wanted to pursue a career in real estate. It has been a passion of mine ever since college when I was given the opportunity to purchase a home to manage with roommates as opposed to paying rent to a landlord. I learned the value of owning property as arguably the best investment and have always found myself attending any open house in the Bay Area as often as possible. Most recently, my wife and I purchased our first home in Linfield Oaks in Menlo Park where we live today.

It was then I realized that I wanted to share my passion of real estate and knowledge of this area with the community as my career. I completed my real estate education in record time (while still teaching!) and passed the final exam on my first attempt. My two most recent listings both sold within a week for well over the asking price.

I am your local neighborhood real estate agent and I am excited to talk to anyone who is interested in buying or selling. My hope is that my knowledge, coupled with my own personal experience and best practices, will help those looking to make the best investment of their lives in the most sought after communities. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your real estate experience.
