When I joined Thrivent Financial, I knew I wanted to make an impact and take on the responsibility of helping my members make wise financial decisions so that they can live generously. I feel guiding with the heart of an educator is an important part of my role. Prior to joining Thrivent Financial, I held management and leadership positions in retail, and was part of a team that held educational seminars to educate employees about their group benefits and retirement plan options available. I am actively involved in the Eagan Rotary club, participating in the Ethics program, the Rotary foundation, and the membership committee. I hold a bachelor’s degree from Minnesota State University-Mankato. I live in Eagan with my wife, Jessica, daughters Addison and Britta and energetic dog, Copper. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors hiking, biking, snowboarding and golfing.
