I began my career in the financial services industry in 1999. As the Founder and primary Wealth Manager of RockWay Wealth Partners, I view my role in my clients’ lives as their partner. I am not only providing financial advice and investment strategies for you and your business but also collaborating with the other professionals in your life as a team to work toward your goals. I love providing ongoing education, objective guidance, and support whenever my clients need it. I am honored to be trusted with the important role I play in my clients’ lives and businesses. Specializing in serving business owners and families, I can coordinate your business & personal financial needs, handling your strategies so you can instead focus on your passions in life.

Simultaneously while working in the financial services industry, I previously served for several years in the Air National Guard and Air Force part-time. I was a pilot of the KC-135 air refueling tanker jet. During my time in the military, I am thankful to have had the opportunity to travel the world and experience many different cultures. My dedication to serving others and strong attention to detail that served me well in my military career, has done the same for serving my clients as a Wealth Manager.

Originally from Sioux City, I currently reside in the western suburbs of Des Moines, Iowa where I devote much of my time to my wife, Cari, and our children. My Christian faith guides my entire life, and in my spare time, I enjoy watching my alma mater, the Iowa Hawkeyes, as well as the Chicago Cubs, playing golf, and spending time with my friends and extended family.
