Kim, my wife of 34 years, and I have two wonderful young adult children, Matt and Becka, and live in the Jenison area. Matt is now married and pursuing his career in the visual arts (animation), while my sports-minded daughter and her husband graduated from Brigham Young University and are pursuing their careers as an athletic trainer and mechanical engineer, respectively. We are also grandparents to two cute toddlers.

I attended Wyoming Public Schools as a child and Kenowa Hills High School as a teenager. I also earned an associate of arts from Grand Rapids Community College and a Bachelor of Science in business administration from Aquinas College.

I'm an active volunteer in many church and community roles including Junior Achievement, church youth programs, Wyoming's Downtown Development Authority, Wyoming-Kentwood Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, West Michigan Edward Jones Foundation, Wyoming Business Leader's Group, Mentor Magic and Toastmasters. I enjoy the physical activity of yard work and cutting/splitting my own wood, but also enjoy playing sports, bicycling and riding motorcycles.

In 2009, I began my career with Edward Jones as a financial advisor with an office on 44th Street SW in Wyoming, MI. Before joining Edward Jones, I had a successful career in the insurance business, which began in 1990. I hold Series 7 and Series 66 securities registrations, as well as life and health insurance licenses.

I feel honored and privileged to be able to help families make informed financial decisions. I find it very gratifying to be able to use an established process and create personalized strategies for the families and individuals I'm able to help. I look forward to the opportunity of partnering with you and your family, for your financial benefit.
