I was born and raised on a dairy farm west of Wahoo, NE. I am very proud that I was raised on the farm and had the values of hard work and honesty instilled in me by my parents.

I graduated from Bishop Neumann High School in Wahoo and attended Wayne State College. I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit, which was evident in the numerous businesses I ran while growing up. Lawn care, and firewood and hay supply were a few that kept me plenty busy.

Prior to Edward Jones, my wife and I owned three Dairy Queens in two states. The restaurants provided a comfortable living, but they were very time-demanding. In 2014, we decided that we wanted to relocate our family closer to relatives, and over the course of the next two years, we trimmed down to one DQ location.

It was in 2014 that I spoke with an Edward Jones financial advisor for the first time. After discussing my financial position, goals and what was important to me, he asked if I had ever considered becoming a financial advisor. I quickly dismissed the question. Later, however, when I gave the question further thought, I realized that because family is so important to me and my wife, Edward Jones, which is very family-oriented, would be a great fit.

I like to help people reach their goals and not only dream but achieve things they hadn't thought possible. Assets and money are not the cure-all for personal or worldly problems; they are merely a tool that, when used correctly, can provide wonderful results for you, your family, your legacy and your charitable wishes.

My best-served clients share this philosophy and have a big-picture mindset. I personally get to know each of them and offer advice and recommendations specific to their goals and dreams.

It's never too early to start. I look forward to getting to know you!
