A little about "me" the person...originally born and raised in Southern California, I have surfed nearly my entire life. It is an incredible passion of mine which has taken me to some of the most exotic and enchanting regions of the world. These journeys have taught me the power of patience, tenacity, determination...and most of all passion. As passionate as I am with surfing, I am equally passionate about helping would be homeowners obtain the best financing terms availalble to fit their special and unique circumstances. There is no better feeling than knowing that I've helped convert a dream into reality. My wife and I moved to Colorado Springs in 2020, and we fell in love the moment we stepped foot onto the front range. We love living in the Flying Horse neighborhood and couldn't be happier. A few trips a year to Mexico for surf and deep-sea fishing cures the surfing ailment.

Professionally, I am a member of Team Chabot at Draper & Kramer Mortgage Corp. (DKMC), a Top 1% team in loan originations nationwide, closing over $80 million in loans annually.

We at DKMC pride ourselves on helping home buyers become home owners. Our lending practice is based on a core principal of providing consumers a variety of innovative mortgage products tailored to meet their individual home financing requirements. I respect that everyone comes to us with unique circumstances and I stand ready to advise them on the very best way to meet their mortgage needs. Of course, DKMC offers very competitive rates across all conventional QM lending programs, i.e. FHA, VA, USDA, Conforming and Jumbo Loans. However, where we truly stand apart from the pack is the multiple portfolio products we offer, such as "Bank Statement Only" loans for the self-employed borrower, "Investor Cash Flow" loans which relies only on the rental income of the subject property for qualifying and having no maximum number of investment properties. We have many more programs enabling us to help a larger population of people including those who did not think homeownership was a possibility. Many of our clients recommend DKMC to a friend or colleague based on their positive experience working with us. When we say we are built for speed and driven by service, we mean it.

I'm a Private Money Broker--specializing in finding the best possible funding for Investment Properties (e.g. non-owner occupied properties), including for rental purchases, STR purchases, flips, and Multifamily investments. I help investors expand their portfolios --with private money there is no "10 property" limit or similar restrictions imposed by traditional mortgage lenders. Can help set up active investors with very attractive private investment "quick draw" funding lines. Can access 100% funding for flips with enough "headroom" for improvement. For Accredited Investors, I also provide advice on diversifying real property exposure through MF syndications, private mortgage notes, and tax deeds.

I am dedicated to helping every client with their mortgage needs, and building a lasting relationship beyond the transaction. I thrive on helping my clients achieve their mortgage goals and I absolutely love what I do.

At Mortgage Solutions Financial, I have the unique opportunity to serve Servicemembers and Veterans who may have been turned down by other lenders because we have no overlays. This means we have no minimum credit score requirement on the VA loan, and we have flexible debt to income ratio guidelines, which may help many VA buyers qualify who have been turned down by other lenders for their VA loan benefit in the past. Because I specialize in VA loans, I am an expert in the guidelines and uniquely qualified to help and advocate for Servicemembers and Veterans.

My mission in my career is to serve and help others, and I am able to do that every day as a Loan Officer at Mortgage Solutions Financial. As a spouse of a service member, I understand the unique challenges that military families face, and I strive to make the home buying and refinancing process as smooth and easy as possible for my clients. Colorado Springs is my hometown, and I am honored to live and work in this amazing community. I graduated from UCCS with my Masters degree at the top of my class and began my career an a Loan Officer shortly after. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and watching my son learn and grow. I look forward to helping you with your mortgage needs!
