I started my career with Northwestern Mutual in 1987. Outside of marrying my wife, joining this excellent company has been the best decision of my life. My business career has been a journey of altruism and I've seen, up close and personal, the value of our first class insurance products help families and widows. I've also witnessed investment models help cover college costs for clients' children and grandchildren, as well as see couples launch into their comfortable retirement years together.

I was attracted to Northwestern Mutual because of its pre-eminent reputation for financial strength and ethics. I've often said that Northwestern Mutual is a company with a soul, because of how we treat each client and uphold our obligations.

The spark, the pleasure, the love, I found three decades ago at Northwestern Mutual, remains burning bright inside me today. It is an honor to represent Northwestern Mutual and a sacred trust to represent each and every one of my clients.

It is most rewarding to employ our counselor method of helping clients identify their needs, through dialogue, and provide custom beneficial solutions. Every client has their own story, their own needs, and their own unique solution. Let us help you with your professional financial security solution.
