I grew up in rural Reno County, KS, the son of a Japanese immigrant father and an Amish-Mennonite mother. My parents' diversity of experience and their encouragement to explore and try things provided a solid foundation for my brothers and me both in life and business.
    After buying an investment property, I discovered I enjoyed real estate, so in 2013 my wife and I began to grow our property management business, Rock Rentals. By mid-2015, we had grown to managing close to 100 properties in and around Hutchinson-up from 4 in mid-2013. As part of my service to investors, I have been involved in the inspection, negotiation, and purchase of many of those properties. In 2016, I joined the real estate sales team at Coldwell Banker Americana and thrive on providing excellent service and value to my clients.

    I currently chair the Choice Books of Kansas Board of Directors and the national Choice Books LLC Board of Directors. I also serve on the leadership team of Hands of Christ Ministry, our local church's ministry to the underprivileged in Hutchinson, KS.

    When I'm not working in real estate or on our farm, I love spending time with my wife Dorcas, and our sons Tristan, Carson, and Cedric. I love our church, Center Amish Mennonite Church, and the reason a church exists-Jesus Christ. My primary hobby is choral singing, but I also enjoy being outdoors, snowboarding, and traveling.
