I was born and raised in Waterloo, IA, and have been an Iowa Hawkeye fan my entire life. After fulfilling my childhood dream of graduating from the University of Iowa, I decided to move to the Twin Cities to help plant an on-campus ministry, The Salt Company, at the University of St. Thomas. On this church plant, I met my wife, and we decided to move to the great state of Iowa. In my free time I enjoy serving my local church, spending quality time with family and friends, working out, golfing, biking, and being outdoors.

The financial services industry is appealing to me because every day I have a unique opportunity to serve clients and individuals in an extraordinary way. It’s beyond great to work for a company like Foster Group that is client focused, mission driven, forward looking, and most importantly – where the company core values align with my own.
