I believe it is important, as an Edward Jones financial advisor, to understand what you are working toward before you invest your money. Engaging with you, your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I want to understand what is important to you. We will partner together throughout your life to help keep you on track.

Growing up in Ponshewaing on Crooked Lake, I have been a lifelong resident of the Little Traverse Bay area. I accepted a Bachelor of Science from Northern Michigan University and feel fortunate to be able to raise my family in Petoskey. Mary and I have been married for 29 years. We have two children, Chase, 25, and Noah, 21. I am passionate about this great lake life we live.

In 1998, I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor, opening the firm's second branch in Petoskey. I became a limited partner with Edward Jones in 2007.

I have been serving as chair of the State of Community Luncheon since 2013; president for Ducks Unlimited of Northern Michigan, 1996-2002; board of trustees on the Sunrise Rotary club, 2001-2003; Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce board of directors and president, 2001-2005; Crooked/Pickerel Lake board of directors, 2005-2006; North Central Michigan College Foundation executive and finance committees, 2005-2018; Crooked Tree Arts Center board vice-chair and later as chair, 2013-2018; and president of the Petoskey Football Boosters, 2013-2018.

With my branch office administrators, Karen Beerthuis and Wendy Neff, our branch works as a team to focus on what matters the most to you.
