Personal

Faith and family are the center of my life. I live each day alongside my beautiful wife, Jamie, and we have recently been blessed with twin sons, Ryan and Jackson. I cherish the big smiles and laughter I’m greeted with each night and love to watch the boys grow and learn every day.

Jamie and I enjoy serving together at our church youth group and have been blessed by the young people and sponsors we’ve had the opportunity to serve and serve with. Our free time is filled with lots of city parks, stroller rides, and visits with grandparents. When time allows, our favorite activity is to enjoy a meal and games with family or friends. Our family and friends play big roles in our lives; they have supported us and challenged us, and we treasure those relationships and always enjoy any opportunity to spend time with them.

My favorite quote is by the American writer and theologian Frederick Buechner: “The place where God calls you is the place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep hunger.” I’m grateful to be at Foster Group where I’m able to combine my faith and mission into serving our clients every day. I’m very passionate about helping others reach their financial goals and doing whatever I can to reduce the complexity that often blocks the way to those goals.
