I have been in the mortgage business since 1991 and have loved every minute (although 2009 & 2010 were a little rough!), I moved from Omaha, NE to Arizona in 1985, attended the University of Arizona and graduated with degrees in Finance and Real Estate.
I have been married to the same wonderful woman since 1991, have 3 great kids and enjoy spending time with my family, running and quite honestly, there isn’t much time left for anything else. My clients are treated with integrity and respect — the way I’d want to be treated.
I own half of this company, so you will deal with the owner – no commissioned loan officers means lower costs for my clients. We broker loans to dozens of lenders, shopping for the best wholesale rates in the market. I have helped my clients since 1991 learn about their options – FHA, conventional, jumbo, VA and private money too.

I started in the lending business in1990 and have been helping Arizona homeowners obtain affordable mortgages ever since. My goal is for you to be so pleased with our service that you can wholeheartedly refer your friends and family. My other goal is to always be a resource to you for your lending questions and needs.
I am an Arizona Native — almost. (My family moved here when I was 1). My grandparents all lived in Arizona and my parents were raised here as well so I’m a third generation Arizonan. After beginning my lending career in California, I was able to come back home to Arizona where I began to work with Heritage Bank as their first Loan Officer. Eventually the bank bought Franklin Mortgage and I became the assistant branch manager while still originating my own book of business. Several years later, the bank was going to spin off the Franklin Mortgage Arm and I used this opportunity to join forces with my now current business partner, Brian Yampolsky, and open Orion Mortgage Corporation. We have been in business since January 28, 2000 and have had the pleasure of helping many, many friends and neighbors in Arizona. It’s an honor to be your lender!
