I grew up in Denver, CO, which will be obvious when you sit down in my office. I was accepted into John Brown University and earned my accounting degree in 1999. I moved to Vancouver, WA, in 2000. I married my beautiful wife in 2004 (blended family) and we have five children between the both of us. In 2009, we tragically lost our older son at age 15, but through that loss, I feel I have become a better father and husband. I try to balance my time between work and family. I have been a Scout Leader for my youngest son's Boy Scout troop for the past several years. Our oldest daughter is married and has found a passion for ballroom dancing. Our younger children keep us busy with all the activities they partake in throughout the year. My wife is an amazing photographer, which started out as just a hobby, and she loves to garden.
I have always had the desire to own my own business and make a difference in people's lives. That dream came true when I opened Timber Home Improvements and was helping improve my clients' biggest investment - their home. But it wasn't enough or satisfying, having people spend their hard-earned money (even though it is a necessary expense). I wanted to have a more positive impact and build a longer relationship with my clients. I needed a change for me and my family and I knew I wanted to be a financial advisor for a firm that had the same values as I did. Edward Jones became the firm on the top of my list based on the firm's ethics and culture.
My primary goal is to help you develop an investment strategy geared toward your unique, long-term goals; whether you need plan for your retirement, save for a child’s education, or reduce taxes. I value personal relationships, so every strategy I offer and every solution I recommend is based on what's important to you. Once I understand your priorities, I can help you identify specific financial goals and develop strategies to help you work toward achieving them.
I look forward to working with you!
