I was born and raised in beautiful Donegal along the Northen coast of Ireland. Growing up in Ireland I was raised amongst a family of entrepreneurs, I was also surrounded by the friendliest and most helpful people in the world. I have no doubt that this gave me a very positive outlook on life and helped me develop a spirit to one day serve the people and run my own business. My journey to America started in 1994 when I was offered a soccer scholarship to the University of San Diego. I studied business and psychology at USD, and upon graduating in 1999 I started out my mortgage career at Wells Fargo as a loan officer.
I have now been in the mortgage business now for 12 years and have funded over 1150 loans. My extensive mortgage experience has seen me serve as a Senior Account Executive at Wells Fargo and HSBC, and as a Senior Wholesale Mortgage Representative and an Underwriter at HSBC. Because of the great training and education I received at Wells Fargo and HSBC, I decided to open up my own mortgage company and founded Citywide Financial Corp in March 2004 on St Patricks Day, as I wanted to make sure I was blessed with some extra luck LOL. I love being in business for myself and I have a passion for helping people, and there is nothing more rewarding than helping people finance the home of their dreams.
