My job allows me the privilege to see generations of my clients and their families go to college, save for travel, enjoy their hobbies and eventually retire with dignity. This type of impact is what inspires me to serve my clients by finding out what truly matters most to them.

I grew up in West Michigan and entered active duty service in the Army after high school. Between active duty, federal service, Army Reserves and National Guard, I have over 24 years of military service. I received a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Michigan Technological University, and a Master of Science in engineering management from Western Michigan University. I taught at Baker College (mathematics and electronics) and WMU (undergraduate engineering) for nine years and worked at Prince Corporation and Johnson Controls as an engineer and program manager for 13 years. I joined Edward Jones in 2007.

My wife, Kimberly, and I reside in Muskegon and have three grown children: Paul, Zaccari and Joshua. I believe strongly in giving back to our community and serve on several community boards. I am an elected officer in the Fruitport Veterans of Foreign Wars Polar Bear Post. I am also a member of the Fruitport Lions Club.

As my business at Edward Jones has grown, I have partnered with several financial advisors to assist me in providing clients with exceptional and personalized service. Currently, my high school class president, Michael Kraus, works with me in the office and is also registered as a financial advisor.
