Although born in Los Angeles in 1969, my first memories of life were my family moving to Mammoth Lakes in 1972. Although I spent most of my childhood in Mammoth Lakes, I did spend my high school years living in Encinitas, California, where I earned a congressional appointment to attend school at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
In 1992, I moved back to California where I helped my father grow our family appraisal office Bankers Appraisal (San Diego) into one of the largest appraisal firms in the County. Our office consisted of 30 appraisers, completing up to 55 appraisals per day, and on time.
After several years of working for Bankers Appraisal, I decided to grow on my own and conduct review appraisals and property tax appeals for various lenders and home owners.
While San Diego is a wonderful place to live, I missed the mountains and decided to take a large step and move back to Mammoth Lakes in 1996. Since this time, my incredible office staff and I have built the county's largest appraisal company with the help of the most modern technology.
While living in Mammoth Lakes, I've sat on the Mono County Assessment Appeals Board, Board for the Chamber of Commerce, Mammoth Lakes Tourism Board, City Council for the Town of Mammoth Lakes (2010-2014), and was Mayor of Mammoth Lakes 2012/2013.
I plan on living in Mammoth Lakes for the rest of my life, living an active outdoor lifestyle with my family and friends.
I am presently an associate Member of the Appraisal Institute with an SRA designation and working toward my MAI designation.
