I genuinely love what I do. It may sound crazy but I love business. I could talk about it all day. Putting buyers together with the sellers of businesses allows me interact with all different types of businesses. I love that I get paid to talk with people who are passionate about business as well.

I have lived in New Orleans for over 25 years, but I have lived all over the US. I am currently a Certified Business Broker, and I am also a licensed Real Estate Agent in the State of Louisiana. I graduated from the University of New Orleans with a degree in Business Administration. I have also completed the SBA Emerging Leaders program.

While still a Junior at UNO, I wrote the Business Plan for my first successful business venture. I took the Internet company from business plan to $2.5 million in sales in just under three years. Having run an Internet business for the better part of a decade, I know how to drive traffic to my clients listings by leveraging the power of the web and putting it to work for them. This makes selling my clients businesses by finding the right buyer a whole lot easier. I have been a guest lecturer at UNO for both Business Planning and Small Business Finance. I have also held multiple positions in sales management and finance management.

I really try to stay active in the local business community through UNO, BNI, Idea Village, Association For Corporate Growth, Louisiana Restaurant Association, and Lambda Chi Alpha Alumni Association. I feel like it is important to truly be a part of the business ecosystem here in New Orleans. We are very lucky to be immersed in all the local quality entrepreneurship taking place. As true student of business, I pride myself on my ability to counsel clients before, during, and after the sale. I believe in a long term approach to business brokerage. I want to establish lasting relationships with our clients to provide them with a trusted advisor they can consistently turn to when buying or selling a business.

I currently reside in Lakeview with my fourteen year-old Weimaraner, Chloe. When I am not busy selling or managing the New Orleans office of Sunbelt Business Brokers I am participating in a variety of sports, training at my local gym, or fighting amateur MMA.
