Kevin joined LPMC in 2015 after a 13 year teaching career in Portland Public Schools mainly focused on teaching government and economics. Prior to teaching Kevin was in the mortgage industry having been a loan officer for World Savings Bank. Kevin loves the excitement of the finance industry. Whether it was helping his students understand personal finance or helping his current clients find the best possible home loan for their financial situation, Kevin has a strong commitment to helping people out. Kevin is not one sit behind his desk – he loves getting out into the community, networking and building his business. Kevin views his job as not just giving home loans but as developing strong relationships with people so that he can help people throughout the course of their lives.
Kevin was born and raised in Portland, Oregon where he has been around the finance industry all his life. Kevin’s dad worked for US Bank for 35 years.
