I graduated from Luther College in Decorah, IA, where I met my beautiful wife of 12 years, Jessica. Jessica and I have two wonderful children, James (6) and Elyse (3), that always keep us on our toes. I have served Sioux Falls in several ways, including as a Mentor through the LSS School-Based Mentor Program, on the Solid Waste Planning Board, and at my church. Something unique about me is I once sailed completely around the world through a program called Semester at Sea. My success as a Thrivent Financial representative is based on how well I help you achieve yours. Equipped with a range of products and services, which include investments, insurance, and annuities, I will help you create a strategy designed specifically for you.
