Growing up in Des Moines, I have been fortunate to have built many lasting friendships over the years. I got to know my best friend and wife while in college and we now stay busy with four boys.

Here are some other facts about me:                            

  • Financial planning and investments are truly a passion of mine, so I like to keep up on both in my free time.
  • I enjoy being outdoors on my family’s small acreage just outside of town.
  • I play guitar and most often play at my local church.
  • I love a cup of coffee and a good book.
  • My teams are the Kansas City Royals, Iowa State Cyclones and the Green Bay Packers.

With family, kids, work, and other activities, life can often feel very full. I continue to see the benefit of revisiting what I truly value and making sure my time, thoughts, and resources are aligned with those things.
