When I was 9 years old, my dad took me along to a financial class where we learned about the Rule of 72 and the math behind compound interest. I remember on that dark winter ride home, my dad telling me “Never forget the Rule of 72”. As a teen, I started investing in mutual funds and individual stocks. This sparked my passion for saving, investing and learning the tools to accomplish long-term goals.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the U of MN. I am Series 7 and Series 66 registered and hold an insurance license for long-term care, life and disability insurance. I also obtained my AAMS® designation from the College for Financial Planning.

While working at Andersen Windows for 15 years in product and project management, my wife and I worked with an Edward Jones advisor to help set our long-term vision and select high-quality investments and insurance needs.

My wife, Jessica, and I have lived in Hudson, WI since 2002. We are the proud parents of four children and are active in many Hudson area community organizations.
