Professional

I have  enjoyed both a challenging and rewarding 26 year career with Northwestern Mutual. After graduating from North Central College in 1987, I had a strong desire to help people and a motivation to be successful. I turned to Northwestern Mutual, a place where I could accomplish both. When I graduated from college, the decision to work for Northwestern Mutual was an easy one. An opportunity to be in business for myself with the training and support of one of the industry's most admired companies was an ideal job for me. I cautiously joke that I am thankful my parents allowed me to stay at home for a while after graduation, as it really helped me to concentrate on building my practice without having to worry about rent money. My practice has prospered ever since.

I credit much of my success to the support of my wife Laurie, and daughters, Caitlin and twins Megan and Erin. I have had great success with my business, and it's because my family is my top priority. Without their support, I would not be where I am today. With a busy schedule, I also find time for my church and hobbies - boating, golfing, and fishing.

I share the same energy and passion for my business today that I did on my first day as a Financial Representative over 25 years ago. I recognize the deep sense of responsibility of serving and being a resource to my clients. Their insurance, retirement, and estate analysis decisions will affect their individual security, their families, and their careers. I am dedicated to serving those needs with honesty and integrity.
