I grew up in Alaska and I love my hometown, Anchorage. Working my way through college on the oil patch and in the seafood industry, I graduated from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and came home with a bachelor's degree in speech communication. A career in wholesale building materials sales followed, along with finding my life partner/super wife, Tracy. We married in 1993 and are blessed with two incredible daughters who are now alums of our University of Alaska. I love music and play guitar in a local band -- and I also thoroughly enjoy boating, camping, travelling, reading and just generally being outside in our great state. I recognize that I am truly lucky!

I became an Edward Jones financial advisor because I have a passion for investing and a passion for helping people. In 2012 I signed up with my awesome firm for the most rewarding work I have ever done, starting my branch office in 2013. I help people and I know that it matters!

I am happiest when I am working with a client who wants to take control of their own destiny and not just float around like a leaf in the wind. This goes way beyond transactional advice. The old saying applies when one is looking to have better choices down the road: "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail."

Whether it is saving for retirement or another goal entirely -- like managing income in retirement, saving for a kid's education, helping maneuver within our tax laws, or having strategies in place to protect your family from the unexpected -- I work with my clients by listening to what is important to them. Then I use an established process to provide them with recommendations that support where they want to be. Finally, we team up and walk down the path of life together to help ensure they are making progress toward those goals. On that "Long and Winding Road" that The Beatles sang about, I am in that car right behind you!

Please reach out to me at my office in Midtown, Anchorage, if I can help you in your journey!
