My history, in brief, is that I was born in Portland and raised in Gresham, Oregon. In 1994, I graduated from the University of Oregon with a 5-year Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Architecture (with a minor in Art History) and immediately found work at a large architectural firm in Portland. In late 1999, I sat for and passed the architectural licensing exams - officially becoming a registered architect in the State of Oregon in January 2000. In 2002, I relocated from Portland to central Oregon and have been here ever since.
The 2008 recession triggered several rounds of lay-offs and re-hires at the architectural firms I last worked for, with one of them eventually closing for good at the end of 2012. Rather than move back to Portland (or another large metro area), I chose to stay in central Oregon and open my own company, Obsidian Architecture llc.
In early 2016, with the housing market on the rebound, I decided to obtain my broker's license and branch out into the world of real estate as well. While the two professions are unique unto themselves, I am finding that they also complement each other rather nicely.
As far as I am aware, I am the only Realtor®/Architect in central Oregon. While I am not a licensed appraiser or inspector, I am happy to offer my professional advice/opinion on other aspects of real estate such as design, siting, materials, remodeling, etc.
Outside of my professional life, or perhaps in support of it, I enjoy music, cinema, photography, outdoor activities, and travel. As a parting bit of trivia, those of you of a certain age (or ageless) might appreciate that a number of those pursuits intersected during a trip I took to the North African country of Tunisia some years ago where I was able to visit the shooting locations for the original STAR WARS as well as two of its prequels (along with a number of locales from RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, THE ENGLISH PATIENT, and MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN).
Though I am licensed to sell real estate throughout the state of Oregon, my focus is on the central Oregon area - including Deschutes County, Jefferson County, Crook County, and occasionally northern Klamath County. This area encompasses the cities and towns of Bend, Redmond, La Pine, Madras, Prineville, Sisters, and Terrebonne as well as the destination resorts of Black Butte Ranch, Brasada Ranch, Crooked River Ranch, Eagle Crest, Pronghorn, Sunriver, and Tetherow.
I welcome the opportunity to meet and work with you!
