I moved to the Mid Coast area over ten years ago after accepting a job opportunity with the Navy. It was 2009, in the midst of the great recession. Given the state of the economy, I felt fortunate just to have landed a job before the grace period on my student loans ended. Before moving to Maine, the plan was to gain some professional experience while waiting for the economy to recover. 

Within a few months of arriving, I realized the real luck was discovering this state! My professional, military, and leisure travel has brought me to all four corners of the U.S. and most everywhere in between. I have concluded that there is no place quite like Maine. It is an exceptional place to live, work, and play. 

My real estate career started after I purchased a piece of land in the mountains of western Maine, with the intent of someday building a “camp” or maybe a tiny house on wheels. After a permitting issue arose, I became very familiar with not only the applicable regulations that governed my situation but also how a seemingly small oversight could significantly delay or even derail a transaction. I enjoyed working to understand the complexities of the transaction and realized I had a broad set of skills and experiences that helped me do so. This led me down a path of helping others understand the process of buying real estate.   

I am licensed as a Professional Engineer with over ten years of experience in construction management and contracting. I have both a Bachelor’s and Master’s of Civil Engineering with coursework in structural design and residential construction. I also serve in the US Navy Reserve as an Engineering Duty Officer, supporting the maintenance of ships and submarines. My experience in this capacity provides me with a broad understanding of mechanical and electrical systems, complementing my background as a structural engineer. My technical experience allows me to help my clients understand all aspects of residential construction.  

My wife, Jonna, and I live in Topsham. In our lives before children, we spent most weekends hiking, camping, and snowshoeing all over the state with our dog, Ralf.  Now that we have two daughters, we spend most of our time exploring closer to home where our appreciation for all this area has to offer has grown immensely. I love living here and would be happy to use my experience to help with any of your real estate goals!
