The personalized financial advice I offer can help you prepare for the expected and unexpected things in life. As a result, you can feel more confident, connected and in control of your financial life. With the right financial advice, life can be brilliant.

I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife, Cathy, and I have two sons, Brandon (19) and Nolan (17). I helped coach their soccer, basketball, and baseball teams along with helping them with school projects and homework. I also enjoy traveling, various sports, and exercising.

Community participation

I, and my family, volunteer time at two charities. At Father Dempsey's, we help cook and serve breakfast on various weekends for the residents. We also help families of F.A.S.T. (Foster Adoption Support Team) by spending time volunteering and providing food and clothing items.
