 I was born and raised in Arlington, Virginia - the lone southerner in a family originally from Massachusetts.  While attending George Mason University and the University of Virginia, I became a member of the United States Marine Corps where I worked with the 10th CounterIntelligence Team.

After college, I worked for Richlin Consultants in Northern Virginia, which handled everything from corporate investigations to investment validity research. My experience in Counterintelligence with the United States Marine Corps peaked my interest in research/investigations and this job was the perfect outlet for me.  My real estate career began at this time when I started researching real estate investments for a number of our clients.  After a few years, I worked my way up through the company and became a partner in the firm. At the height of our business, I received an offer I couldn't resist and sold my share of the company.

In 1996, I relocated to Florida and semi-retired in Key West.
Here, I worked as a captain on the sailing vessel Floridaysa 60-foot Irwin yacht. We made daily trips to the barrier reef taking passengers seven miles off Key West to snorkel and relax.  When bad weather prevented us from sailing, I continued to invest and consult on real estate. It was here that I met my wife, Whitney, a fellow boat captain.

In 2004, after the birth of our first daughter, Kaya, we moved to Venice, FL.  I returned to real estate when I became a real estate appraiser and, in 2006, we welcomed our second daughter, Leila.  At that time, I opened Banyan Appraisal, a residential real estate valuation company and, in 2008, we welcomed our son, Reef.
