From Whittier, California
I grew up in Whittier, California, and graduated from Whittier High School, the only public high school to have a graduate become President and was the high school in the movie Back to the Future.
After graduating from BYU, I worked for 15 years in information technology. However, finding my people skills under-used, I moved into sales. When selling, the most important thing is to sell a service and company that will greatly benefit customers, and honestly deliver when I promise that value will exceed their costs. I joined Odyssey because of the trust I have in the ownership, Sean and Ixia Holmes, and their commitment to building a business on honesty, top quality workmanship, and extra effort.
I am the blessed father of four beautiful children, Cooper, Cat, Lydia, and Calder, with one more on the way. I am the middle child of seven, my father was in sales and set an example to me of how to treat customers with respect and also educate them in all they need to know to make a commitment.
My personal interests include religion, sports, great architecture, and trying new and delicious food. I can also bake 30-minute brownies in 20 minutes.
