I was born in Olympia and moved the to the Renton area when I was young, where I still live with my wife Priya and our three dogs. My only time away from Washington was while serving in the Marine Corps and living many places in the US and other countries. During that time, I’ve come to learn my favorite place and home is the PNW. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I feel much the same way about the true community focus at HomeStreet Bank and I feel at home here on the Commercial Lending Team.
In the Marine Corps I learned to strive for excellence which helped with my educational background. I received my BA in Economics from the University of Washington and later a BS in Accounting from Western Governors University.
