Originally from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, I also called Florida home for more than 10 years before moving to New York in 2007. I attended Florida State University and got my first taste of leadership there as the elected President of my dormitory and, later, as President of the Inter-Residence Hall Council, overseeing all 4,000+ students in 15 on-campus dorms. In my early professional life, I spent several years performing as a drummer with numerous rock bands within the New York City area and beyond. I also amassed over 20 years of experience in sales and customer service before joining the Coldwell Banker team. I relocated to Silicon Valley in 2019.
As the Branch Manager of the San Mateo, CA office, I'm integrally involved in the day-to-day business operations and growth. I particularly enjoy guiding new and experienced Agents in building and expanding their respective businesses. My five years of experience as an agent have given me firsthand expertise in helping my agents successfully develop and grow in the industry. As an agent, I earned "Rising Star of the Year" and "Silver Award" accolades within my firm, as well as a stream of referrals, repeat business and rave reviews from my clients. I now apply the concepts that aided in that success to the development of my team.
In my free time, you can find me relaxing with my wife, Leslie, and son, Vance. I also enjoy anything Star Wars-related, and rooting for the Miami Dolphins and Florida State Seminoles.
