Senior Loan Officer

NMLS # 448049


I studied Political Science at Mount Saint Mary’s University from 1993-1995 before leaving to get a head start on being an adult.  My career in the financial services industry began as a finance manager in the automobile industry.  After 20 years of helping people obtain loans for their second largest purchase, I decided to change careers and move on to number one.  There is a great deal of responsibility that is taken on when you play a key part in helping folks finalize and secure their home, but the reward is so worth it.  There are so many moving parts, last minute changes, and phone calls any time… day or night.  It is this very serious responsibility that drives my actions, to be the best at what I do for my company and be everything to my clients that I would want if I were in their shoes.

I pride myself on paying attention to the little details while providing clear and concise information in a timely manner.  Any Loan Officer can help you get a loan, but a bad Loan officer can ruin your experience.  If you want it done right, I’m your guy. 

And just in case you are wondering who we found to help with the financing of our new Charleston home, Carolina One Mortgage, of course….

Carolina One Mortgage and myself offer mortgages of every variety.   Conventional, FHA, VA, USDA.  We even have our own “Smart Series” of loans, for out of the box situations.    We deal in new construction, existing home sales, and refinancing of your existing mortgage.  We offer a full on-line experience, or if you prefer, a good old fashioned in-person sit down.  If you are in the market for a home loan, we do it best, and I can help.
