About Ian, Your Portland Mortgage Expert

I’m passionate about my job as a loan officer.  Assisting my clients in successfully navigating the mortgage process to achieve their goals is a responsibility I love.  Education plays a key role in this effort.  Because each client comes to me with a unique set of circumstances, I work to tailor my approach to each one individually.

I view my client relationships over the long term.  As such, I strive to communicate promptly with objective advice and clear counsel throughout the loan process, whether it takes a few weeks or a few months for a client to accomplish their goals.

How did you arrive at this business? What path brought you here?

I entered the mortgage business 12 years ago after a career in music, performing and teaching as a professional trumpeter.

Where can we find you when you’re not working?

You might find me running on one of the myriad trails the Portland area has to offer.  I love to recharge by getting out into the natural world.  You might also find me cooking or baking a few vegan recipes at once in my chemistry lab of a kitchen.

Where did you grow up and why aren’t you there now?

Until last year, I lived most of my life in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I chose to relocate to Portland to explore a new avenue of life and culture and to live in closer proximity to my daughter, Jilian, who teaches 4th and 5th graders in Seattle.

My greatest athletic accomplishment…

In 2013, I took 1st place overall in the Triple Trail Challenge in Park City, Utah - a series of three races including the 16-mile Jupiter Steeplechase, the Park City Half Marathon, and the Mid-Mountain Marathon.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?

This last spring, my daughter and I traveled to Scotland for a week.  We were intrigued by the opportunity to revel in the cultural ambience and natural beauty, to visit a few castles, and to sip a wee dram at some distilleries, all in the country of our ancestors.
