After more than 25 years working in information technology and consulting in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, I made the decision to change my career focus and become a financial advisor, combining my longtime interest in personal finance with my desire to work directly with clients and help them achieve what's important to them.

My goal is to get to know people within the community, listen carefully to understand what matters most to them and use the problem-solving skills I have gained during my career to identify investment strategies tailored to the unique needs of each client. I enjoy working with individuals and families to create financial strategies that help them attain the lifestyle they desire, prepare for key events in their lives and feel secure about their future. One of my areas of focus is helping business owners, freelancers and independent consultants with retirement savings and other needs such as life and disability insurance.

I studied economics with a minor in math as an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota and earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota.

My office is located in Champlin, Minnesota, and my practice is centered around Maple Grove, where my wife, Leeanne, and I have lived for more than 20 years and where our son and daughter have grown up. I am eager to serve investors from all parts of the U.S. who value having someone partner with them to plan for their long-term goals and to help them implement and monitor their strategies.

Whether you are planning for retirement, saving for education or trying to provide financial security for your business or the people you care about, we can work together to develop personalized strategies to help you achieve your goals.
