Sandwiched between earning a BS in Marketing and an MBA, I served as a naval officer assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency. Then taught business administration courses for three years at the University of Maryland before deciding to follow my own entrepreneurial instincts and relocate to Park City,Utah.
The potential of Park City's real estate market was obvious and I quickly found myself immersed in real estate sales, marketing and development. Over the next 30 years, I was involved in all phases of Park City's real estate growth: acquisitions, entitlements, land development, construction, marketing and sales. I participated in the sales and closings of hundreds of lots, homes, condominiums, and commercial structures from Deer Valley to Main Street, Kimball's Junction and Pinebrook.
In late 1999 another entrepreneurial dream began to take shape. Together with several Park City friends, we started with the purchase and planting of 16 acres. There was plenty of hard work along the path to achieving our award winning Parallel Napa Valley Cabernet. Good fortune permitted my wife and I to reside in Napa Valley and watch over the production and sales of Parallel Napa Valley Wines from 2002 through 2013. My college girlfriend Toni and I have been married for 50 years. Following a 3 residency in the inspiring landscapes of Southern Utah, we settled in beautiful Paradise Valley, Arizona, where Toni continues her career as an artist and I now work with Engel & Voelkers, Scottsdale assisting clients in reaching their real estate goals
