my idea of

living the dream

The financial ability to create time and experiences with the family. A balance between our families’ financial now and financial future.

dream job

this is my

Meeting and helping a lot of people with their financial goals. Of all the roles I have had over 20 years in the financial business the most fulfilling and fun is meeting with folks that typically do not have broad access to financial planning services. Assisting people to realize that with a realistic and sustainable plan they can, in fact, reach their goals is quite fulfilling and fun! The “ah-ha” moment when someone realizes they can do it…that’s my target and passion.

this is how i

make it real

Travel, hockey, baseball, basketball, and the lake are a few of the places you would find me often and “keeping it real.”
