I have a passion for educating people on strategies they can use to become and stay financially secure. No matter what your financial goals are, achieving them requires preparation. I will take time to understand your values and we'll identify what's most important to you. Backed by the financial strength of Thrivent Financial, I'll provide financial guidance that connects your finances with your values. Every plan or recommendation I offer is different, it all depends on you and your goals. My goal is to make sure you understand the "why" behind the decisions you are making. My wife, Nancy, and I, along with our two children, are members of The Lutheran Church of St. Andrew in Silver Spring, MD. As an athlete, I enjoy cycling and weight lifting.
