How I Got To This Point

My goal in running for Breckenridge Town Council is to positively
impact this amazing town and make it a place we are all happy to call home over the next 50 years. I hope to make an impact using my extensive experience in real estate, business, open space and events.

Giving back to this wonderful town is important to me.  I have been a member of the Summit County Open Space Advisory Council since February 2013 and Vice Chair since 2019.  I am thankful to be the Chair of the Breckenridge Events Committee since 2018.  I was lucky to serve as a member of the governor appointed 5th Judicial District Nominating Commission from 2016 to 2022.  Being the Chair of the Isak Heartstone Troll Committee to move the troll out of the Wellington was also a challenging, fun and rewarding experience. 

My wife, Barb, and I are passionate about our community, and we proudly support the Summit Foundation, the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center, the FIRC,, Summit Youth Hockey, and many other local charities. 


We founded SkatesGiving which has raised almost $100k in the past 3 years to provide free kids hockey for kids under 8 in Summit County.  It has also provided scholarships and equipment for older kids in the program.


Prior to arriving in the mountains, I graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Virginia and then served in the Air Force for 5 years, earning my MBA at night. I then spent 6 years doing Business Development in Northern Virginia, Tokyo, Japan and Seattle, Washington working on South America and Asia.  Having lived in Pennsylvania, Germany, Virginia, New Mexico, Boston, D.C., Tokyo, traveling for a year and finally moving to Summit County in 2005, I feel like I am finally "home."


I have sold real estate in the mountains for almost 15 years and started and run a successful real estate brokerage firm for almost 13 years. In addition to real estate sales, we own and manage multiple long-term rentals in Summit County.  My real estate expertise encompasses sales (including selling the 214 unit deed restricted Smith Ranch project in Silverthorne), development, long-term rentals, short-term rentals and hundreds of hours evaluating parcels for acquisition by the Summit County and Breckenridge Open Space programs.


When not working, I am a big fan of wandering mountain bike rides in the Golden Horseshoe, taking a lap around Mt. Guyot, ski touring from the Laurium, playing hockey and lingering at the Amazing Grace.
