I am full time real estate professional specializing in personalized service for the Greater Portland market. My real estate career began in 2003 after zigzagging through such diverse fields as arts education, scientific research, and event marketing. It was a natural fit for me as it combined a number of my passions in a professional setting. I received a BA in Art and Art History from St Lawrence University, a BAHons in Sociology from the University of Tasmania, in Australia, and I have completed over 3 years of study for a PhD in Sociology. All of this has given me a great appreciation for structures and spaces and how people live in them. On a personal note, I love to travel (45 countries and counting), participate in sports (play hockey year-round) and have a love of the arts (literature, art, music). My aim as a real estate professional is to listen carefully to my clients, ask relevant questions, and help them make informed decisions about their real estate goals.
