I'm the owner and president of My Ground - Design / Build. I've been working in the trades since 1989 and I earned my first contractor license in 1996. I built this company in a small town in California. In the spring of 2018 I moved to Bend and have been rebuilding my business here.
Growing up in Central Oregon with a single parent that always had a tough time getting by and usually working normal jobs put me on the path to getting a good job with good benefits and hoping for the raise a few times a decade. Until two years ago I started meeting people in this business of real estate and who were truly living a life by design while being able to help people along the way. Once I saw this I went on a non stop rampage of devouring information about real estate investing. This lead to the idea of hey, why not become a real estate broker? And now here I am, a broker with Keller Williams Central Oregon. My passion that has helped to endure the pain of starting this career is the ability to help people and myself improve there lives through the vehicle of real estate.
