I grew up in a rural area surrounded by almond orchards, rice fields, and walnut trees. At 17 years old, I enlisted to the Marine Corps. Afterwards, over the next 30 years, I worked as a General contractor, superintendent, and project manager and I was also working with At Risk Youth in and out of my home.
I have always kept ranching, farming and outdoors as part of my life. I’m a rancher and a realtor. My ranch/farm is located in the Perrydale area of Polk County. I also have ranching and farming connections throughout Oregon with friends, families, and clients. I’ve had wonderful experiences of working and interacting with good people that have enriched my life.
