I started working at Thrivent Financial in 2012 because I wanted to help people. Managing your finances can be stressful, but with a plan, we can work together to lessen that stress and build a solid strategy for your family’s future. Relationships are the reason I love this job. Life is full of change - marriage, having kids, college, job changes, retirement, living in retirement - and your financial strategies should be flexible to handle whatever comes your way. You can count on me to be a resource for informed financial decisions and stay on track with your goals. Away from the job, I’m a sports fanatic, with the Seahawks and Mariners topping the list of my passions. I’m from a small town, Othello, in eastern Washington, but have been a Seattleite since 2005. I’m married to Carey, and we have two boys, Bode and Dominic. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and am continually working to improve my golf game.
