Background & Experience

I have been designing and building my entire life.  After graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in scenic design, my wife and I moved to Hoboken in order to pursue a career in the theatre.  I worked in off-broadway theatres and eventually landed at The Parade Studio, building the floats for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Then in 1980, we purchased our first home. The house was an 1860s 3-story townhouse and a fixer-upper in every sense of the word.  The skills I learned renovating that house formed the foundation for my future career. Because I transitioned to working as a renovation contractor, cabinet-maker, and home builder.

After serving in the Marine Corps Infantry I returned home to New Jersey to pursue a career as a real estate appraiser. Timing is everything and in seven years I was fortunate enough to appraise roughly 3,500 properties in northern NJ. During that time I bought a house in Bedminster, NJ that needed a complete restoration. That’s when I realized the excitement, headache and stress that comes with the process of improving and maintaining a home. 

Sometime later, and as the joke is told, “I met a guy at a bar” and was offered the opportunity to sell real estate in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  After selling my house in 2006, I packed up, drove across the country, down the Baja, and spent the next four years on vacation in Cabo.

In 2011 we moved to Las Vegas where I became a licensed home inspector helping home buyers identify problems before their purchase.  Then, after six years away from family and friends, we decided it was time to move back to New Jersey, establish roots and start a family.

I’m proud to be a part of the Monk’s team. I like making my client’s life easier and their homes better.
