About Me

Born and raised in the small community of Klamath Falls, Oregon, I learned the value of relationship and service from an early age. My love for sports taught me the importance of hard work, persistence, and helping others. These principles led me to receive a B.S. in Business Management from the University of Nevada. I’m a firm believer that people power business and although ‘what’ you know is important, it really boils down to ‘who’ you know.

Prior to joining Guild Mortgage, I served my local business community in many capacities, primarily through sales and marketing efforts. Most notably, I helped the Reno + Sparks Chamber of Commerce quadruple their membership base in two years.

My value for networking eventually led me to Guild Mortgage, which allows me to combine my passion for people, service, and strategic planning. I consider it a privilege to help my clients achieve their financial goals. I understand the complexities of lending and the stress that often comes with this process, which is why earning their trust and becoming their lender for life is always my goal.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife (Cristyn) and I have three awesome children – Aiden, Aniya, and Enzo. Oh, and I can’t forget our dog, Chief!

We can't say enough about Taylor. He was not only professional he was helpful throughout the process. He guided us all through the purchase of our new home. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate loan. He's a 10 out of 10!!!

Taylor and his team were great to work with! Helped advise me on best loan for my needs and always fast and responsive. Due to previous experiences I was a little hesitant but Taylor made the process extremely simple for me.

Taylor was amazing during my whole mortgage process. Every time I had a question he had an answer. I never waited for a call back (very rare with some lenders). I will recommend Taylor and Guild Mortgage to anyone in the Reno Nevada area looking for their first home. Thanks Taylor and team for making me a home owner!
