I'm proud to be a lifelong Mainer and service-driven professional doing home inspections for my community. I'm also a home-owner with a background in construction management and a father of three with my wife, Hilary.


My oldest children are at UNH and the University of Maine, respectively. My youngest is in the Brunswick school system.  Volunteering in their schools and athletic programs (hockey, baseball, soccer, and dance), most recently as a Midcoast Youth Hockey Association board member and scheduler, takes up much of my time at home.

Our quotes don’t change, we follow through with commitments, and will travel to where you need us to provide you the needed information within your timeframe.  You can rely on us to always provide attentive listening and excellent communication as your home inspection professional.  I’ve built trusted relationships with realtors and other professional resources in the inspection industry throughout Maine to help you with your home purchase.

My experience as a Medical Officer in the Military is how I first came to understand the connection between our health and the environment we live in.  Another Army influence was its disciplined nature and the importance of procedural reporting. Both of these elements are a part of my career choice as a home inspector and my clients rely on both my courteous service and direct communication about important issues you should be aware of in your home. 


My years in both school and the military had me traveling extensively. I took this opportunity to learn about varied real estate markets around the country as I gained experience buying, fixing, renting, and selling properties along the way. Integrity is a cornerstone of my life and it has served me well as botha home buyer and as a professional advisor.


My wife and I have lived on the Midcoast for 20 years and raised our two daughters here; coaching their teams, driving them to swim meets, and enjoying all our beautiful state offers. I continue to enjoy volunteering with Habit for Humanity and in providing services as a home inspector that contribute to the safety of families in our community.
