From a very young age I was intrigued with buildings so I decided when I was ten years old that I wanted to be an Architect. In fact, I built my first structure, a dog house, when I was twelve. From that point until graduation from High School I did what I could to feed my interest in drafting and design.

I began my college years enrolled in the College of Architecture at the University of Arkansas. However, for reasons I still regret to this day, I transferred to the College of Business Administration where I earned a degree in Accounting and Computer Information Systems. Had I not made this change, however, I likely would have not met my wonderful wife and mother of my two great kids, Tanya.

After graduation from the University of Arkansas, I spent the next twelve years as a manager in the corporate environment where I had responsibility at times for more than fifty people and sales budgets of more than $50 million.

In 2004 I decided that it was time to fire my employer and follow my first passion, construction. I started a company that distributed home improvement products in NW Arkansas and Southern Missouri.

In the summer of 2005 I met Greg at a home and garden show and we immediately began discussing the possibility of starting a home building business. After a few months of planning, we started our first project as Loreto Homes in the fall of 2005.

For our homeowners, their home plays such an important part of their lives as a place where they gather with their families and friends to enjoy special times and make memories. I am thrilled that I have the opportunity to play the role of providing them with a beautiful, comfortable and energy-efficient home.

all other builders I have had the opportunity to work with."
