Professional Experience:

Prior to becoming a Real Estate agent, I worked for over 20 years in the non-profit industry, primarily with children and adults with special needs.   In my career in non-profit, I have worked with a diverse range of different roles and populations, including as an ABA therapist and executive director.  I have also worked several years in nursing homes with exensive experience working with senior citizens with Alzheimer's and dementia.  

I have been an adjunct instructor at Rowan University since 2007, teaching Psychology and Developmental courses.  In addition, I also teach similiar courses as an Adjunct at local St John's River State College.  



I am originally from the South Jersey/ Philly area and relocated to St Augustine in 2018.   We relocated as we fell in love with the area on a few vacations and had a job opportunity arise.  I am the proud father of 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls).  My oldest daughter currently attends UNF and is fluent in ASL, my son and daughter (twins) attend local Tocoi Creek High School and my youngest son is at Pacetti Bay and plays football.   My daughter at Tocoi is a Varsity Cross Country runner. My son at Tocoi has special needs, but loves gaming and creative writing.   Through the years, I proudly coached all of my children at multiple youth sports.  My wife and I have been married for over 20 years and she is a kindergarten teacher at a local school in St. Johns County.  

Some of my favorite things to do when not working: Family time, anything outdoors (beach, pool, kayaking, springs, amusement parks), watching comedies or psychological thrillers, watching Philly Sports (GO Eagles, Phillies, Sixers and Flyers!!), laughing/humor and grilling on a nice day!!


I love helping people and believe in kindness, patience and compassion.   Please reach out to me and I would love to help you with any questions about the area or any of your buying/ selling/ relocating needs.
