My first memories of investing money were provided as lessons from my family: birthday cards with gifts of money and encouragement to save for college. It would be a while, though, before I would find my place helping others achieve their financial goals.

I earned both a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and a master's degree in business administration from the University of North Dakota. It was during my MBA education that I grew a passion for investments, but I limited that passion to my family's needs while I spent the next years in the industrial engineering and construction field.

It was not until I found Edward Jones that I realized I could combine my passion for investing with a desire to help others into a career that would also allow me to bring my family back to Grand Forks.

My objective as a financial advisor is to invest my time to understand first what is important to you. My focus areas are retirement savings and income strategies that will afford my clients more options to enjoy their time in retirement, and then to help them plan for leaving a legacy for their families' future generations. I enjoy helping my clients understand wealth strategies in easy terms and to help tame the emotional side of investing.

My wife, Stephanie, and I are raising our four children here in Grand Forks. I spend my free time with family activities, hunting and at the lake.
