After having grown up in a Christian family and attending Christian school from K-12, I attended Central Michigan University. Upon graduation, I entered a profession in public services. After working for municipalities for 15 years, in 2014, I made the the change to Thrivent Financial because I felt that God was calling me to help his people. Looking back, this was the best decision I had ever made professionally. Everyday, I am blessed with the opportunity to meet others and help guide them through their financial lives.

I first began working in the financial industry in 2000, joining Thrivent in early 2004. Working in the field of financial services, my priority is to continue growing my depth of knowledge, having earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2012. As a Financial Consultant, I particularly enjoy working with couples and individuals to determine their personalized course of action in preparing for their "golden years" in retirement.

My beloved wife, Kathy and I happily reside in Plymouth, MI. Aside from my professional career, I enjoy spending time outdoors cutting firewood, gardening and making Maple Syrup.
