Since 1998 I have dedicated my life to the real estate business here in the Rogue Valley.  I was a licensed agent for 3 years until I was offered a marketing position with First American Title. During my tenure there from 2000-2007, I was promoted to the position of Regional Marketing and Sales Manager as well as Realtor Education Coordinator. In my 7 years at the company, our staff enhanced and promoted its services and personnel, effectively increasing our market share to become the leading title insurer in the valley.

As a City of Medford Planning Commissioner for 3 years, I acquired a lot of knowledge and experience in understanding city planning and development goals, as well as a solid understanding of the laws, ordinances and rules of the development application process.

I earned a Business Administration/ Marketing degree from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles in 1980, and a graduate degree and teaching certificate in History from Montana State University in Bozeman in 1998. For 13 years, I was a commercial print consultant in San Francisco, and worked for a real estate publishing company in Montana before relocating to the Rogue Valley in 1997.

Born in Massachusetts, but raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have traveled extensively around the globe. My Russian wife and I have 3 children and enjoy tending our 10-acre mini-farm here in Medford. I’m involved in supporting and assisting our local boy scout troop, and am a dedicated history, geography and political science aficionado.
