I have a degree in Urban Geography from the University of Washington with intense study focus on social demography, economics, global trade, thematic mapping, urban ecology, environmental law, epidemiology, architecture and urban planning. In addition, I have studied social planning policies and water management in The Netherlands. I have worked in various aspects of masonry construction and continue my love for stone, brick, and old world skills with artistic pursuits of stone carving, mosaics, and garden design. Why I do what I do: I don’t bring up my background to show off feathers. Rather, this is merely meant to relay a narrative in what motivates me. From the time I could open a book, I was fascinated by cultures and ways of life. Every elementary school lunch hour was spent in the library reading about past civilizations and looking at ancient stone buildings and wonder “how did they build that?” and “What were these used for?” and imagining how people lived. I learned early on that no matter what place or time one lives, no one ever has the exact same idea about what the ideal life looks like. This could not be more evident when it comes to real estate. People are not a cookie-cutter, one size fits all kind of situation. I am not a cookie-cutter, one size fits all type of real estate agent. I love to help people and in being a property matchmaker, I get to help many people realize their next life chapter.
