John understands that buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions a family can make and values his role as a trusted adviser. A native of California, he spent his early career as District Sales Manager with Bimbo Bakeries before switching to finance nearly sixteen years ago. Specializing in USDA, FHA and Conventional loans, John brings his considerable market experience and insights to Umpqua Bank where his passion for the lending industry and excellent customer service will serve his new clients well.
When he's not working, John enjoys fishing the Umpqua River for sturgeon and the Sacramento River for salmon. Active in his former community in California, where he volunteered for years with the Boys and Girls Club and the Chico Food Bank, John is excited to settle in and make an impact in his new community of Newport.
