Fun Facts


Born in Boston, Mass and moved 10 times before turning 18. I've lived in four states (Arizona, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Colorado) and four foreign countries (Netherlands, Japan, Hong Kong and Iran), traveling the world and experiencing the global lifestyle from an early age.

Graduated from University of Colorado at Boulder with a B.A. in Economics and Computer Science. Was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.

Worked for 18 years in the corporate world, rising through the ranks from data/IP sales to senior management, mostly with AT&T and Qwest in Denver. I’m very comfortable with the Internet and “The Cloud” because I helped my clients build it.

Spent five years in finance as a mortgage banker, licensed financial advisor, and bank vice president. Earned my Series 7, Series 66, and several insurance licenses.

Co-hosted a live weekly radio show – “Real Estate Radio with the Green Team” – for a year on 1480 KPHX, Phoenix’s progressive talk radio station.

Resident of South Scottsdale since 2005 with my partner of 17 years and our two Golden Retrievers.

You'll find me camping, hiking, biking, and pretty much anything outdoors when it’s not 110°. I love to travel and explore, and am a fan of live music and street fairs.

I’ve climbed 12 of Colorado’s “Fourteeners” (mountains over 14,000 ft) and many of the peaks surrounding Metro Phoenix (they're not quite as tall).

I'm an avid cyclist, and once pedaled my bike 400 miles for the 6-day “Ride the Rockies” and the 2-day "MS 150" a week later.

I have an endless thirst for knowledge, and average one new real estate certification every year on top of the required continuing education.
