I enjoy helping people, solving complex financial problems and seeing the look on people's faces when they are satisfied with the level of service that Colleen and I provide to them and their loved ones. Over the years, I have been invited to many birthday parties, retirement parties, weddings and funerals. Each event is important to me because the invitation to the milestones in my client's lives demonstrates the level of respect and care we share as we develop our relationships.

The relationships that stand out to me are the ones that involve becoming like family: the client who teaches me woodworking and his wife who teaches my daughters to knit and loom; the client with whom I have lunch monthly and look forward to the wisdom he shares; the client I golf with and the countless clients who call me to share good news, to get advice and to just listen. Seeing them reach their goals, travel to places on their bucket list, help their children go to college and buy their first home – all these milestones I treasure as if they were my own.

My branch office administrator, Colleen Ganders, has been with the company since 2005 and is an integral part of our branch. Colleen was a travel agent before Edward Jones and earned a BA in geography from Western Washington University. She enjoys hearing about our clients' travels.

I've been married since 2005. My wife is a high school teacher and we have three daughters and a son. For fun, I like to play chess and competitive Pokémon, and read. I enjoy basketball and attending my daughters' sporting events. I also love to travel – my favorite place I've been so far is Rio de Janeiro.

My wife and I do volunteer work together. For ten years, we have run a chess club at our daughters' elementary school and we also teach Sunday school. Giving back to the community that has given us so much is part of our DNA. We always try to make the space around us better, wherever we are.
