About Me

I began my career in the Mortgage industry in 1997 at the age of 17. My Dad ran multiple mortgage banks, my mom was a DE underwriter as well as a HUD trainer, my Grandfather was a big wig at Stewart Title and my Grandmother owned her own Escrow company. Needless to say, I grew up in this business.

After spending 15 years in the broker space learning, processing and assisting 6 of the top 200 mortgage originators in the country, 1 of which was top 5, I decided I wanted to enter into the Wholesale space. I needed to learn more about why lenders did certain things. I have learned a lot about pricing models, guidelines, compliance, investor relations, secondary markets, etc.

In 2010, I started my wholesale career with ClearVision Funding and had incredible success. In late 2014, I had an opportunity to do something big. That was to be a part of the start of Orion Lending. I am employee #4, the 1st Account executive, the 1st to sign up a broker, the 1st to fund a loan and am grateful for that opportunity. I have been a top AE and I am very excited to continue to grow this company.

I have amassed an impressive network of clients and affiliates through my commitment to providing outstanding, reliable service. I pride myself on being readily available to my clients and always answering my phone. I establish trust with my clients by operating with complete transparency regarding the probability, timeline, and potential challenges of the mortgage loan process. I also work closely with underwriters, sales managers, and account managers to expedite closings. This work ethic and integrity have become my trademark and are evident in the reputation I have established with my clients and colleagues.

When I am not funding loans, building relationships internally and externally, training, coaching and being there to help grow businesses, I like to spend time with my wife and 3 children. I also enjoy Football, Baseball, Golf, building cars, reading and being able to spend time with friends and family.
