After graduating from Pacific Lutheran University, I joined Thrivent Financial in the summer of 2008. Numbers and Financial Planning have always been an interest of mine which I inherited from my mother who has spent almost her entire career in the financial industry. I was attracted to Thrivent because of the Christian values as well as the ability to provide financial advice and guidance to my clients. In a fiduciary capacity, I can provide wealth management and retirement income planning to help you achieve your goals. When not in the office, I spend time with my wife, Katie, who is a nurse in Everett. We have one son named Austin and an English Springer Spaniel named Birdie. I am also a PADI Divemaster and assist in the teaching of scuba classes throughout the Puget Sound.
