Born in San Diego California I graduated from San Diego State University in 1991. During and after college I worked multiple jobs in the Architecture field. It proved to be a tough time for this profession. Wanting something more and having been interested in the financial services world and helping others I was drawn to Thrivent. 26 years later I continue my role as a Financial Consultant and have earned the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designation from the American College. Living in Ventura Ca. I have been married to Tara for 24 years and have 3 kids. Trenton, 20 and Caden, 18 both attend Colorado State University in Fort Collins Colorado. Talia, 15 is a sophomore in high school. We have 2 dogs, 5 cats, a flock of chickens and a Sulcata Tortoise. When we are not visiting our boys I enjoy date nights with Tara, spending time with friends, watching Talia play water polo, my 1962 Chevy Nova Convertible and cheering on FC Barcelona.
