Who are you?
I grew up working and playing on my grandpa’s farm in Edgerton, Wisconsin. Raised by a financial planner and an accountant, financial services is in my blood. I now live in Minneapolis with my wife, Leah, our daughter, Collette, and our two dogs, Piper and Hank.
What drives you?
Everything I do is to help others gain confidence so they can succeed at whatever matters most to them. Some people need help taking the next step in their career, some need help growing their business, and some simply need to better understand their finances. Whatever it is, I love finding ways to help people.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
When I’m feeling social, I enjoy meeting new people. I’m the finance chair in a networking group focused on helping career-focused professionals develop their leadership skills. This is a perfect outlet for me to meet new people and help them grow.
When I need to recharge, I love going off the grid either fishing somewhere, hunting, hiking, or skiing out west.
What do you do well?
I’m very analytical and detailed when it comes to financial planning. I pride myself on being able to keep up-to-date on industry changes and I do a great job of tying in new technologies to help our clients stay organized.
