In 1971, I found my calling: to serve Main Street Americans with my vast knowledge in investing to help them achieve their financial goals and dreams.

I began my career working locally in financial services when there were more sheep than people. After marrying my beautiful wife, Marta, and admiring how she helped so many individuals serving as a psychologist, I saw that I too could make a difference. In 1998, I became an independent financial advisor, offering my clients financial solutions that work best for their needs.

My wife and I raised three incredible children while serving the community and now enjoy our five granddaughters, two cats and time on the golf course.

People that know me well describe me as honest and conscientious.  A man of my word.  Down to earth. I look forward to getting to know your family and helping you with your financial future.
