Tell us about you! Where were you born, what do you enjoy in your free time?
I was born in Bismarck, North Dakota and raised in Turtle Lake, North Dakota. I grew up playing football, basketball and baseball through high school. After high school, I got a B.A. in Communication and a Law Degree with an Emphasis in Real Estate Law from the University of North Dakota. From there I moved to Honolulu, Hawaii to work for the State of Hawaii as a Legislative Analyst. After I left the bitter cold of North Dakota, I knew that I had to live in a Southern state and that’s how I ended up in Nashville! I enjoy traveling, watching/playing sports, health and fitness, hiking with my wife, and playing with my two boxer dogs, Eli and Archer.
When and how did you become a part of Mark Spain Real Estate?
I started with Mark Spain Real Estate this past Monday and couldn’t be more excited to join the team! I kept hearing Mark Spain Real Estate ads on the Sports Talk Radio station and they were extremely well done. As a result, I started to research the company and knew instantly that I wanted to be a part of it! I searched for available jobs in leadership and the rest is history!
How long have you been involved in real estate and where?
I have been involved in real estate my entire life. My Dad is a home builder dating back to the 1970’s when he was a developer in the Lake Tahoe area of CA and NV. I have been involved in every aspect of real estate from laying the foundation to the sale. When I was earning my law degree, I took every Real Estate Law course available. Before I moved to TN, I had spent some time working for Verity Homes in North Dakota.

What are your passions in life outside of work?
I am very passionate about helping people who need help! I have spent time volunteering for the Special Olympics and organizing fundraisers for various causes.
What is a hidden talent that you have?
Trivia, but specifically sports and pop culture trivia. You’ll often find me making the rounds at the various trivia nights in the Greater Nashville area.
Who inspires you in life?
My dad is my biggest hero! His work ethic, integrity, generosity, talent, and care for others is what I strive to be.
