What or Who inspires you (or motivates) you to give back in your community?
As a farm kid from Indiana, I appreciate the Los Angeles community and the opportunity to build a successful real estate career in a community that rewards individuals for hard work, honesty, respect and, creativity for solving complex problems without discrimination for ethnicity, background or education. Great communities are built on sharing a common belief that we all need to work together as a family to help each other succeed.

I have been active in supporting Habitat LA for the last five years. I am pleased to be involved in a wonderful organization that supports individuals and families in need of critical housing, and especially an organization who appreciates and recognizes the benefit of unifying families into quality housing to provide an environment to bind the family together while elevating their self-esteem.

Home is a safe, supportive, clean, loving, accepting and a healthy enrichment environment.
Please share a favorite Habitat moment?
Celebrating the Builder’s Ball honorees at the spectacular Builder’s Ball evening dinner celebration with friends, volunteers, sponsors and families in need. There is nothing more rewarding than sharing a special moment with others who have generously supported Habitat for Humanity and who have made a difference in the lives of those in need in Los Angeles.
