I currently live in Douglas, MI with my beautiful wife Anna, and two children Asher and Elise. I enjoy boating, golfing, and spending time with my family and friends. I grew up in south west Ohio, graduated from Miami University with a BS in Finance. I came into the mortgage industry in Ohio as a rookie in March of 2014. Prior to that I was a former race car driver competing in the Indy Lights series with IndyCar. I raced alongside Marco Andretti and Arie Luyendyk Jr. During that time, I also worked in my family’s transportation business.
Being brand new to banking and mortgage, starting out as a mortgage loan officer was intimidating. The first year was spent learning about products, how the process works and more about systems. I quickly picked up how mortgages work and moved to Michigan at the end of my first year. Starting out my first full year in a new state with no existing connections, I closed $16M. Every year after, my production increased to $27M, $31M, and then something changed last year. I keep doing the same behaviors of years past, but my production fell to $27M. I wasn’t meeting my goals, and something had to change.
High Trust helped give me the discipline to develop a system to transform my business.
