I was raised in Baxter, MN and my wife, Leah, in Breezy Point, MN. Together we have one son, Chayton, with a second child on the way. Leah operates the Beez Kneez Family Daycare from our house. A few of our favorite activities include camping, bow hunting, working on our unfinished house so we can eventually rent it, and spending time with friends and family. I pursued this industry largely because of my experience in banking. During this time I realized most people would benefit from professional financial guidance. As a Financial Representative I've positioned myself to help people be more proactive and intentional with their financial decisions. I chose to align myself with Thrivent because it provides comprehensive solutions which allow me to develop deep relationships with those I serve. Also, because it is a place where people appreciate the expression of faith. For these two reasons, among several others, I believe Thrivent is positioned to dominate this industry.
