Buying, or selling a home on Nantucket is a real commitment. The demand for homes here has never been higher. While the price of admission is high, the memories you create here is where the value lays.


Like many before me, I came to Nantucket for "one crazy summer" while in college. Those few months turned into a lifetime passion and have shaped my life since finishing at the University of Delaware in 1994.

My sales and business development career began at the age of 16, when I successfully founded business barter company. This venture, among other things, was able to fund and coordinate an annual Thanksgiving dinner for 50 homeless people in Wilmington, Delaware, catered by a premier area chef, and promoted by a local radio station.

My experience in sales, marketing and business development has been broad-based with a focus on technology. I was an independent sales representative for 16 action sports lines servicing 180 accounts, VP of Sales for Glass Eye Media (web development), Director of Business Development for M2 Discovery (voice discovery), and the VP of Siren Marine (M2M) the winner of the RI Business Plan Competition Technology Award and Overall Winner 2012. If you've ever seen me behind a bar, then you also know I can make a pretty mean cocktail!

When I'm not working, my passions are fishing, exploring the less traveled parts of the island, tinkering with my 1963 Sunbeam Alpine, and Snowboarding.
