After graduating from Clemson University,  began my working career as an accountant and internal auditor. Auditing morphed into a successful sales career 15 years before becoming a financial advisor developing complete financial plans for clients. When I began to work in the mortgage finance industry in 2000, when I began originating mortgages on home purchases, refinancing existing loans and assisting clients in effective utilization of their real estate equity.


My goal is “help other people with the most expensive transaction of their lives.” Because American Pacific Mortgage does not advertise its services, I rely entirely on my clients, friends and business partners to refer people who can benefit from my services. My business totally depends on giving clients a superb level of service before, during and after each transaction.

Business Approach

  • Personalize recommendations based upon client goals and needs.
  • Provide unique solutions and varied options to clients as appropriate.
  • Ensure complete understanding of process and loan options.
  • Meet all commitments on or before due dates.
  • Safeguard client information as if it were my own. 

Community Involvement

My life reflects a commitment to making our community a better place to live and work.  In keeping with this commitment, I focus my energies on volunteering at our local schools, church, and community projects.  A lot of my time and energy involves our kids sports teams and programs.  I also contribute time and financial support to other worthy causes in our area.

Mr. Thornton provided excellent services. We liked that he responded back to our calls in a timely manner. We also liked that he kept on top of things and worked with us to overcome hurdles for closing our loan.
