About Me

Your trust is my greatest asset, and I will offer you my experience, integrity, and knowledge to earn it. When you choose me as your lender, you will receive my 30-plus years of lending experience with every type of real estate financing. My extensive real estate background has allowed me to help countless clients, in a variety of real estate markets, to obtain the right home loan for their needs.

Before joining Guild, I was VITEK Mortgage Group’s Placerville branch manager for 8 years. Prior to that I was the owner of Western Foothill Mortgage, a local lender in Placerville. My goal is to help you weigh all of your loan options, so you can feel confident you are making the right financial decision. I am dedicated to helping you achieve your financing goals and exceeding your expectations.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Finance from San Diego State University with a concentration in real estate. Additionally, I have been a Realtor®, contractor, investment counselor, and college instructor. I have been happily married to my wife, Cindy, for 29 years and we have three children and six grandchildren; all who help provide balance and fulfillment to my life. I have been a resident of El Dorado County since 1975 and believe in staying active throughout all facets of our community. When I am not securing my clients’ home loans, you will probably find me either in Maui, as my wife and I travel there often, or in the Sierra Mountains. In my leisure I also enjoy golfing, hiking, backpacking and spending quality time with my family. I look forward to serving your lending needs.
