As a Laramie native and UW alum, I’m looking forward to combining my desire to be a part of the growth of the community I love with my passion for technology and photography to make the home buying and selling process a smooth one. Since graduating in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Geography with an emphasis in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), I’ve worked in various aspects of survey in the civil engineering sector. It is with great excitement that I’m embarking on this change of seasons in my own career and I look forward to assisting others through some of the biggest next steps of their lives as well. 

 Since I started my journey into real estate, I’ve consistently heard that one’s success is dependent on helping people. I believe that this is not only is that focus good for business, but it is just the right thing to do. 

 My wife, Angela, and I have two beautiful children - Jameson (4) and Audrey (1). When we aren’t chasing after them or our golden retriever, Bogey, we are enjoying UW home football games, photographing the beautiful scenery in the mountains, golfing and entertaining friends and family in our backyard. 

 Knowing that selling or purchasing a home is one of the most important decisions in your life, I would be honored to be a part of this journey with you. Please feel free to reach out to me at 307-760-4816 or
