Throughout my diverse career, I have been honored with recognition for thinking outside the box and have led and developed businesses and organizations in Virginia, Washington, and now California.
Graduating with honors in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech gave me the skill to develop Holdren's, a retail appliance and electronics company, into one nationally recognized for its many innovations. One of the most important of those innovations was my work in the development of the home theater concept.
During that time, I conceived of, designed, and sold a very profitable 14 store rental company within a 4-year time span. But life isn't just about work and making a profit. It's about giving back; It's about empowering others to make lasting changes in their own lives. To that end, I volunteered as president of several influential community organizations that helped to improve the lives of many in Central and Southwestern Virginia.
After Holdren's was sold, I moved on to become the U.S. Director of Interdev, a small but influential international organization based in Seattle. Here, my primary role was to help generate funding from the U.S. to support Interdev's innovative partnership-building efforts throughout Central Asia. While there Interdev's revenues more than doubled.
In 2002 I went back to school and graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Wake Forest University in North Carolina. The unique combination of education and work experience gives me a powerful perspective on Real Estate. Since moving to the Central Coast over 16 years ago, I have held key sales and management positions before becoming a Realtor. I offer extensive knowledge of San Luis Obispo County neighborhoods, schools, community offerings, market conditions, property values, zoning regulations, and other ordinances. I also enjoy superb working relationships with
professionals in the areas of finance, real estate law, title search, home inspection, and appraisal.
Presently, my family and I live in the Five Cities area of San Luis Obispo County and I represent Richardson Properties, the leading real estate brokerage on the Central Coast.
