Real Estate Agent

Born at Hilton Head Hospital and raised here in the Lowcountry, I have been fortunate enough to call both Hilton Head and Bluffton home since 1990. Growing up in the area I attended schools on both “sides of the bridge,” and graduated from Hilton Head Preparatory School in 2008, ultimately attending the College of Charleston. During my college summer breaks I would return to the island, working for tourism hotspots such as The Salty Dog. And yes, I still have those highly sought after “staff” shirts!

Prior to joining Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty, I spent six years in the corporate Marketing and Advertising industry, with a specific focus in real estate. In my time working with brokers, builders, and developers, we worked to identify and match buyer demographics and behaviors to specific properties and communities. Because of this experience, I’m able to bring an unparalleled set of skills and resources to effectively market our team’s listings, as well as finding buyer clients their perfect home. I am a multi-award winning marketing professional and have been certified by Google in both Ad and Analytic categories. I consider myself a true “nerd” for data and problem solving.

My wife and I live in Downtown Bluffton with our four golden retrievers and brood of egg-laying hens. You can often find us golf carting around town, typically with a pup in the front seat. When I’m not assisting my real estate clients, I enjoy spending time outdoors, usually on the golf course or fly fishing for coastal redfish. As the oldest of five boys, I enjoy watching my younger brothers compete for the Hilton Head Prep Dolphins, and can usually be found in the stands on gameday.

I’ve been blessed to call the Lowcountry home for over 30 years, and continue to be humbled by how unbelievable this area truly is. Growing up in the community, its school system and sports programs, I feel a deep connection and understanding of the area and its evolution over the years. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the country in my previous career, but there’s a special charm when you’re here. I would be delighted to share with you why the Lowcountry is so captivating!
