Originally from International Falls, Minn., I began my Edward Jones journey as a client in 2010. At the time, the financial markets were just coming out of the great recession. Like so many others, I needed guidance with my finances and found the approach of Edward Jones to be comforting and informative. I had always been deeply interested in the financial markets and passionate about helping people. I made the decision to become a member of the Edward Jones family as a financial advisor, and I have never looked back.

Our office is located in beautiful downtown Waconia. With all the small town appealing charm of International Falls, this undoubtedly feels like home. My No. 1 priority is empowering our valued clients to try to reach their financial goals. I partner with them by providing the Edward Jones tools and develop a strategy to serve as a road map to meet their short-term and long-term goals, whether it be funding college for their children, building a cabin in northern Minnesota, planning their dream retirement or leaving a legacy for their loved ones. We also work with local businesses setting up SIMPLE retirement plans for their employees and life insurance for the owners.

My beautiful wife, Tammy, and I have three wonderful children and two pretty cool dogs. Community involvement is very important to me, and I'm proud to be a member of the Waconia Lions Club and volunteer at the Waconia Food Shelf. In my free time, you can find me tending to our vegetable garden, on a local golf course or enjoying a quiet evening on the lake fishing.

My branch office administrator, Patti Higgins, grew up in Waconia and knows the area well. She has over 20 years of experience serving clients and is committed to providing you with excellent, attentive service. Together, we welcome the opportunity to get to know you and to assist you and your family with your financial future.
