Before I can speak intelligently about the services that might be appropriate for you and your family, I need to get to know you. And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know me.

In my first 3 years as a financial representative I qualified for the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.  In 2003 I was the office New FR of the Year.  In addition to my role as an FR, I began mentoring and coaching new FR's as a Field Director and have been a member of the office Leadership Development Group (LEAD) since 2004.  In 2010 I qualified for the company's inaugural Lives Leader's Summit. 

In Jan of 2011, I took on a new role becoming Managing Director of Northwestern Mutual's Leawood, KS office.  In this role, in addition to taking care of my personal clients, I am responsible for all aspects of recruiting, training and development of new financial representatives and advisors at the Leawood location. 

Ingram's magazine honored me  as a member of their 2017 class of 40 Under Forty, which recognizes the achievements and promise of the area's young executives, professionals and community leaders.

In 2018, l opened a new Northwestern Mutual office in Olathe, KS and qualified for Northwestern Mutual's FORUM while leading the office internship program to a top 3 finish out of 206 offices.   I serve on the board for the Community Impact Foundation.  I am actively involved with the World Pediatric Project.   

I enjoy spending time with my wife Lindsey, who home schools our son Luca and daughter Sophie Sam.  I also enjoy running far and slow as well as playing bad golf.
