I’ve been a Wealth Advisor for more than 18 years. There are a couple of reasons for that. For one thing, my father was a Thrivent representative. I always admired how he helped people achieve their goals and helped take the worry out of their financial futures. Watching him work helped me realize that a career as a wealth advisor used both things that I love – working with people and numbers. Today, I specialize in retirement income planning, investment management, tax efficient financial strategies, and wealth transfer strategies. Thrivent was a good fit because it is a financial organization that helps Christians live out their faith and be good stewards of God’s gifts. Thrivent is deeply rooted in the values of community and generosity. Helping our community thrive is important to my clients, and to me. My wife, Misty, and I live in Scottsdale, and belong to La Casa de Cristo Lutheran Church. During my spare time, I love watching our teenagers, Nolan and Bailey, play sports.
