Growing up in the folksy Midwest was a different sort of childhood filled with farms and lakes for boating and fishing. After my studies and active life on the Michigan State Crew team, I left the very weekend of graduation. I packed up an old Oldsmobile and drove through the mountains of Pennsylvania to New York, in my hand a degree, my possessions, and $2000.00. While driving and listening to my AM radio in a car without air conditioning, Frank Sinatra’s song New York, New York played and I was hopeful that as the song goes I could make it there!

Prior to my Real Estate career I worked in the hospitality business at some of the most iconic restaurants in New York City. I got my start in the hospitality industry by a chance meeting with a hotel owner in a small town in Switzerland. While on vacation with a college friend, I was offered a job to come back and work at the hotel in the Alps for the summer. I left a job at a Mutual Fund Company to try my hand at my real love FOOD and Wine. Upon my return to NYC, I worked in several small local restaurants on the Upper East Side of New York City with my last job being at the famed Russian Tea Room, along with working for a wine importer selling New World wines to restaurants in New York City.

Currently residing in the quaint village of Port Jefferson, I enjoy walking around the beautiful harbor front and attending Village events. The most important part of living in Three Village/Port Jefferson is the people. The cultural events at Stony Brook University bring a lot of inspiration to the locals and beyond.

I continue to have a love for food, entertaining, and travel. Part of the reason I became a Real Estate Broker was to work with the public to help them achieve the American dream. As a seasoned Real Estate Broker I will guide you through the process and eliminate the stress that often happens in a Real Estate transaction.
