My Background

I've been a financial professional since 2012. Each day I get up, go to work, and feel truly honored and inspired helping my clients achieve financial security.

I was born and raised in Mayetta, Kansas, north of Topeka where my office is now located. Growing up in rural America, I learned the value of hard work, family, and friendships as well as the real value of money. In fact, I worked my way through college at Washburn University.


My life took a turn at age 23, when my father unexpectedly passed away. The importance of being able to pay bills and having adequate life insurance really hit home—a lesson I never forgot.


I started my financial services practice from scratch, with no outside help—it's something I'm very proud of. Through tenacity, hard work, and helping my clients achieve their goals, my practice grew to what it is today.


Over the years, I've achieved professional accolades that I'm very proud of, including:

  • Being a member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), recognized as The Premier Association of Financial Professionals®, for the past four years – recognized globally as the standard of excellence for life insurance sales performance in the insurance and financial services industry 

  • Proudly qualifiying for the Executive council for five years and Presidents council for 2021-The sales of great products have driven New York Life's 176 years of steady growth. Today's Council meetings are both a measurement of an agent's success and a pillar of Agency culture.

  • Served as president of National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors Topeka chapter- also graduating from the Leadership in Life Institute LILI course in 2016

  • Participated in New York Life's well-known training program, NYLIC University

However, my biggest reward remains helping my clients make sound financial decisions, work toward a better future and worry less about their money. 


I am a proud family man, husband, and father of three great kids. I'm also an active member of the Topeka community; a member of Topeka Performing Arts Center and volunteer in our church youth program. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, competitive cycling, and running.   


So think about where you are and where you want to go. And please call me with questions or concerns. Let's talk.
