I’ve been married to Kristin for 34 years. We are proud parents of adult children: Courtney, Cade, and Carly Jo. Members at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Osseo, MN I enjoy gardening, fishing, barbecuing and spending time with family. I've been in the financial services world since 1987 and working for Thrivent since 1991. I really enjoy the retirement planning focus, both the accumulation and the distribution side. Helping people be wise with money and more “tax efficient” along the way is something, I feel, sets me apart from other planners. And working for a membership organization of Christians allows me to help people with their stewardship and charitable causes. Giving back to their churches, charities, and communities is one of the most rewarding things we can do.
