I often get asked what is it that I do for work. The way my wife describes it is that I am a "Dream Manager"; that I am helping individuals and their families accomplish and protect their life's aspirations. Money is a tool that, if used efficiently, can help people become financially secure and maximize their return on life with the financial resources they have. My job is to help others accomplish that.

Before I became a financial advisor with Edward Jones, I grew up in the Arlington community and graduated from Arlington High School. I then attended Pacific Lutheran University. While attending PLU, I was able to balance my studies and play football while lettering all four years playing for the Lutes.

As I am helping people with their financial health, my wife, Michele, an AHS and PLU alumnus as well, complements that by helping others with their physical health. As a registered nurse, she is responsible for caring for people in their time of need.

My senior branch office administrator, Maureen Nichol, has been with Edward Jones for 10 years. Before joining the firm, she graduated from AHS and went on to earn her bachelor's degree in communication from Western Washington University. She is dedicated to providing the highest level of client service possible.

Together as a branch team, we strive to be the local first choice financial office for individuals, business owners and their families. Our goal is to understand what is most important to you, then use our established process to present personalized strategies for your unique goals. This is not a one-time conversation but an ongoing planning process allowing us to adjust to what life may bring you along the way.

For those of you we have not yet met, I would like to extend my help to you and your family by providing the answers to your questions so you can feel financially empowered. Let us understand what your possibilities are and allow us to help you explore and reach them.
