I began my financial advisor career at Merrill Lynch in February of 1997. After 12 years at Merrill, I moved my practice to Edward Jones in April of 2009.

I graduated summa cum laude from Wayne State College, in Wayne, NE. I have earned the CFP®*, Certified Financial Planner™, and CRPC®**, Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor™ professional designations.

I volunteer at my church, St. Andrew Lutheran, in Eden Prairie. I am also a member of the Eden Prairie AM Rotary Club and the Eden Prairie Chamber of Commerce. I have enjoyed coaching numerous youth soccer, volleyball, basketball and football teams in Eden Prairie.

I live in Eden Prairie with my wife, Sandy, and daughters, AJ, Katy and Annie. We live on an acreage with our four horses, a dog and numerous cats.
