About me


As a mortgage professional with 20 years of industry experience, I pride myself on providing professional, ethical, and honest advice, in conjunction with finding clients the most suitable product based on their specific circumstances. I feel it’s important to understand a client’s full financial picture and goals to determine the best solution, whether it’s a refinance, purchase, or construction of a new home. Prior to Truist Mortgage, I worked at Patriot Bank, Susquehanna Bank, National Penn Bank, and Truist’s predecessor firm, BB&T.

Personal interests

I live in the Lehigh Valley with my wife and two amazing daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy hunting, camping, fishing, and being at the beach.
