About Me

Timeline

1987 - 2005: Born in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Growing up I played outside a lot skateboarding, skiing and snowboarding, fly fishing, hiking, car camping, poaching hot tubs, sledding etc. My friends and I played poker, and hung out in parking lots until we were old enough to have our own living rooms to hang out in.

2006 - 2009: Attended and graduated college at University of Wyoming with a degree in Business Finance. During and after college, I to worked in my dad's businesses Jackson Hole Reservations and Jackson Hole Real Estate Company

2010 - 2014: Got married to my beautiful bride Kristy and moved to Ashland in Southern Oregon. Kris and I hiked in the woods with our dogs, rode our bikes around town, drove out to the coast to play in the Ocean, and got into practicing yoga. We started investing in multi-family real estate by buying a house with a mother-in-law cottage in the back to rent and fixed up the main house while living in it.

2015-2016: We decided to leave Ashland to start Laura Lee Farms®, a hydroponic greenhouse farm in Bliss, ID. We got the business started and then decided that this particular farming business was not going to work for us. We left the business with my Dad to carry forward. Kristy and I wanted to focus our time on starting a family and investing in multi-family real estate.

2017 - 2019: Moved to Boise, ID and had two babies. Boise's a great place for us right now. It's super family friendly. We enjoy hanging out at home, walking the streets, eating out, and going to parks.
