I joined Thrivent Financial in 2008 after working for National City Bank for six years in corporate lending and risk management. My practice focuses on investment management, retirement and tax strategies, risk management, and estate transfer issues. My wife, Becky, and I live in Avon with our two children, Samantha and Will. We attend Faith Lutheran Church in Avon. I am a graduate of Lutheran High School West in Rocky River, OH and Miami University in Oxford, OH. In my free time I enjoy spending time family and enjoying all of the activities that Cleveland provides.
