About Me

This June, I will celebrate my 25th anniversary with MIG. In that time, thousands of Knoxvillians have trusted me to advise them about the biggest financial decision they have ever made. I began my career in 1994 and have been the branch manager of MIG’s main Knoxville branch since 2007. As a licensed mortgage loan originator and senior loan officer, I strive to let each of my clients know that I care by making customer service my top priority. Together with Assistant Kristie Morrow, Processor Dawn Campbell and Closer Christine Hurd, I give each of my customers the undivided attention to detail that they deserve for their unique situations.

I am a member of the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors and the Knoxville Mortgage Bankers Association, which recognized me in 2009 and 2010 as Mortgage Banker of the Year, in 2011 and 2012 with the President’s Circle Award, 2008 and 2010 with the Platinum Production Award, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017 with the Gold Platinum Award, and the Silver Platinum Award in 2014.

When I’m not helping people realize their dreams of becoming homeowners, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our son and daughter. I look forward to assisting you with your current or future mortgage loan needs. You may reach me at the contact information below. I hope to hear from you soon.
