18-year veteran of the financial services industry with extensive experience and success in the arena of insurance, annuities, investing, and health related products.

I have spent a majority of my career introducing, training, developing, and mentoring career changers and community leaders into the world of financial services.

My passion and beliefs are embodied through the servicing of my community by directly or indirectly protecting families, business owners, and employees. My courage and convictions are driven by the profound belief that no one should experience the financial devastation that stems from the lack of planning for an unexpected illness, injury, or death of a loved one.

I am married to my wife Nancy, and have 4 beautiful children. Natalee, Jareth, Ethan, and Corbin. I am a golf enthusiast and an avid outdoorsman. I enjoy fly fishing, upland bird hunting, shooting sports, big game hunting, and camping and riding anything with a motor!
