Born and raised in the suburbs of Bucks County, I grew up loving the city of Philadelphia. As soon as I turned 16 and got my license, my friends and I would drive to South Philly and skate the streets of the city during the day. At night, I frequently found myself entranced by the old local music venues like The TLA, The Church Basement, and the Rotunda

When I turned 18 I moved to Mayfair and bought my first home. I settled down for 11 years in my starter home, where I made Philadelphia my forever city. During my time in Mayfair I met Janelle, my wife. We decided to do all of our "adulting" at once by getting married right after we bought our house (don't ask about our stress levels during those 3 months)! We scoured the neighborhood of Fishtown, viewing new construction, rehabs, and everything in-between. Eventually we found the perfect home with just the right amount of character on Oxford Street. Jeanne was our agent during this crazy time in our lives, which is how my relationship with The PHGs started. I knew it was destiny!

I've spent my professional life in retail management, most recently working at H&M. I hope to bring my passion for people, operations, and communication into my real estate transition. My wife and I still love our life in Fishtown where we live with our dog Rilo, a King Charles Spaniel, who is named after our favorite band. He is our pride and joy. As a family we like to adventure the streets of the hood, meet all the neighbors and pups, and frequent Palmer and Penn Treaty Park. When I'm not in the office you can find me at local coffee shops, visiting family in AC and Cape May, as well as enjoying as many horror movies as we possibly can. Our favorite neighborhood bites include Fishtown Tavern, Johnny Brenda's, and Lloyd Whiskey Bar
