Born and raised in and around the Louisville, Kentucky area, my family has ties to Louisville, Bardstown and the surrounding communities dating back several hundred years. I attended schools in Jefferson and Oldham Counties before attending the University of Kentucky. I am blessed to be married to Anne Hayden, who is also a successful real estate professional, and we share our lives with Scarlette and Hilary.
Driven by a love of music, I decided to leave school and move to Nashville to pursue a career in the music business. This began a seven year journey that led me to working on over 200 albums by a huge variety of artists as a recording engineer. Needless to say, it was an incredible experience that generated priceless memories I will cherish forever. I still get to enjoy the very personal insight of hearing a song I worked on playing softly in a store, or at a friend's house, and remembering all of the work, passion, and magic that went into creating such a lasting piece of art. Always makes me smile...
Somewhere along this journey, I was bitten by a little thing called the 'aviation bug'. While I had never imagined my professional life outside of music, I suddenly found myself actively acquiring my Commercial Pilot's License, my Airline Transport Pilot certificate, plus my flight instructor certificates, including CFI, CFII and MEI. You can probably see what's coming next...
I decided to change careers mid-stream and begin anew as a professional pilot. As I had moved to California for this particular adventure (better flying weather), I was slowly gaining a solid appreciation for the quality of life I had left behind in Louisville and Nashville (no offense to you Californians, I just absolutely love this part of the country!)
During my five and a half years in California, real estate caught my eye as an additional outlet for my desire to work in a challenging field and to help people achieve their personal goals in life. I had been successful in the music business and aviation with that philosophy, so why not apply it to real estate? I waited to jump in with both feet until returning to Louisville, but since making that decision, I have been enjoying every minute of the experience. I love meeting new people, helping people achieve their dreams and goals and I love all aspects of the business, from seeing a huge variety of homes to dealing with all aspects of negotiations.
