I am a retired Navy Officer and Pilot. During my 23 years of active duty my family transferred 10 times and I deployed overseas 8 times. I understand the hardships and stresses that military families go through during their PCS moves. When we transferred to NAS Whidbey Island in 2006 we knew that we had finally found our home. After I retired I became a Realtor and I was fortunate enough to be one of the original brokers at the RE/MAX Gateway office in Anacortes when it opened. The military community is very important to me. As a certified Military Relocation Professional, I can continue to serve those who serve our great country. I still have the flying bug and continue to fly as a NASA Research Pilot in Greenland and Antarctica for climate change research missions. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Patricia. We have two grown children at competing Washington colleges.
