    My family moved to Marshalltown, IA from Potomac, IL in 6th grade. I remain very close with many of my friends from my childhood. In 1995 I moved to Iowa City for school and am happy to call the area home. My wife, Becky, and I have been married for 21 years. Our son, Maddux, was born in 2007. Nothing like being a dad! He shares my passion for sports, we can talk stats for hours.

    I have always had a passion for real estate starting in 1997 when my parents, Becky, and I flipped our first house in Grinnell, Iowa. Becky and I purchased our first house in Iowa City in 1998, we fixed it up and quickly upgraded. I’ve worked for Watts Group for 6 years. Helping manage over 1200 residential properties and playing an active role on the real estate team. I love working and living in this community!
