I was born and raised in Southern California. Almost forty years ago, I began my banking and finance career at a local Southern California Savings and Loan. From the very beginning, I focused on learning as much as possible about the banking and mortgage lending industry. As my knowledge and experience grew, I moved into various management roles while staying engaged with my lending responsibilities.

I am grateful to have connected my experience with Ladera Lending, where we invest a great deal of time and energy to ensure each of our customers has a positive result and a great experience. Over the years, I have built many lifelong relationships with colleagues and clients, and each one of them is very important to me.

There are many events during the loan process that I love, but I get tremendous joy out of calling each client to deliver the great news that we have successfully completed their loan transaction. Those moments inspire me to continue working hard for each customer I engage with.

When I am out of the office, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities where I can spend time with my grown sons. We love sport fishing, hunting, shooting, camping, playing poker, off-road racing, and using the pellet smoker during one of our backyard BBQs. I have been married to my high school sweetheart since 1986, and we are blessed with four wonderful grandchildren - three girls and one boy. I cherish every moment spent with my family.
