Prior to my role at Thrivent, I worked in the blue-collar industry while starting my family and finishing college at The Ohio State University. As my professional life continued to grow, I worked my way into executive management and vice president positions. Now, as a financial consultant, I’m able to live out my passion of helping others achieve their goals. And through my time in the industry, I’ve found that building lasting relationships with the people I serve is key to helping them succeed. My wife, Sue, and I live in Gahanna and regularly attend Peace and St. Matthews Churches. I enjoy spending my free time with our four adult children and my grandkids, teaching them to fish and making memories at the lake together. I’m also an avid cyclist and enjoy supporting nonprofits of all kinds. I’m especially passionate about volunteering on Habitat and Thrivent Faith Builds projects, which has helped construct more than 25 homes in our local area.
