After growing up in the Sarasota area, I joined the Navy and spent the better part of 6 years stationed in Okinawa Japan with the Marines. After leaving the military I completed my Bachelors degree, and started running nursing homes in the Orlando area. My nursing home career took me all over the country and I eventually became the COO of a mid-sized nursing home company that operated in California, Arizona, and Washington. After leaving the west coast, I operated a portfolio of 42 nursing homes in the Chicago area. While living all over the country, my wife and I have always maintained a house in the Sarasota area and we really feel like we are coming home to Sarasota.
Over the years my wife and I have enjoyed travelling and we have travelled extensively as my wife works for an airline and I owned a travel agency for a few years. We have travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, and throughout Mexico. We also enjoy golf, spending time at the beach, and we recently took up pickleball. I am also a big fan of college football and F1 racing.
Throughout the years, I have bought and sold several homes and a few investment properties that include waterfront properties here in Southwest Florida. In my position as COO I assisted with transacting several commercial properties as part of complex operations transfers. I am a 24/7 realtor that is available via cell to my clients.
