For me, being a Financial Representative is all about taking people from where they are and helping them get to where they want to be. After 13 years in the industry, I’ve learned that it really is all about making a connection and taking the time to understand the needs and goals of my members. Together, we'll find answers to the questions, "How much life insurance do I need?", "How much do I need to retire?", and "Can we really afford to help the kids through college?" I strive to do what is best for my clients in all cases, providing strong financial guidance and working with them to determine how best to get them to their dreams. I am a lifelong resident of the Greater Milwaukee Area and have spent my entire career as a Thrivent Financial Representative. I am the husband of Julie, and father of Kallie, Brady, and Nolan. In my free time, you can find me at one of my daughter’s dance recitals, home with family, friends, and neighbors, or on the nearest golf course.
