My Approach

What are your dreams and goals for retirement? I can help you achieve them with our exclusive Confident Retirement® approach. It all starts with a personalized conversation, where we'll discuss retirement needs - covering essentials, ensuring lifestyle, preparing for the unexpected, and leaving a legacy. By breaking retirement down into doable steps, we can help take the uncertainty out of planning for your financial future.

Take a few minutes now for a quick confidence check. Your responses can help jumpstart our conversation.



My family and I love to travel! We enjoy drives along the North Shore, or the tranquility of the Caribbean sea. Each year we take the kids to a fun place; last year Disney World and this year Estes Park, Colorado. My wife and I enjoy biking through southern Minnesota. I believe in giving back to the communities in which I live. I volunteer at my sons’ school and support the St. Paul Children’s Hospital. When I’m not attending a soccer or basketball game, I can usually be found on my deck reading a book. If I’m really feeling patient, you might find me out chasing the little white ball around (golf!). Life is great.
