I love helping my clients understand what they own, why they own it and how they can use their investments to help them reach their goals. My branch team partner is Dulcey Rufledt and for the past nine years, we have come to work each day to serve our clients! We see ourselves as "financial butlers", here to work for our clients. We provide the ideal client experience by asking each person what is most important to them and I help them to arrange their assets to accomplish their dreams. We partner with our clients for their lifetime so they can better enjoy their own lives and family.

I grew up here in South Dakota and graduated from Vermillion High School in 1985. I attended the University of South Dakota for three years before taking a couple years off from school. I was blessed to marry my high school sweetheart, Beth, in 1989 and we moved to Laramie, WY where I graduated with a bachelor's degree in science from the University of Wyoming business school in 1992. My first career job was as a claims adjuster for Mountain West Farm Bureau Insurance in Laramie. After four years, I became a property and casualty underwriting manager. In 2001, State Farm offered me a position as a life insurance specialist in Sioux City, IA. We then moved to Rapid City in 2002 when I was given the opportunity to begin my career with Edward Jones.

Beth and I have three kids, Ellie, Neil and Liam, and we live in the beautiful Black Hills close to Johnson Siding. We thoroughly enjoy spending time with family and friends. On most weekends you will find me playing bass guitar at Rimrock Church, doing yard work, fishing, riding ATVs or hiking around the Black Hills.

If you have dreams for living a better life, enjoying time with your family and developing a strategy for tax-efficient wealth transfer, then give us a call and let's have a conversation about what's important to you and how we can help you accomplish your dreams!
