I was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington and have lived in this great state my whole life. I married my high school sweetheart, Gwynne, in 2007, and we are raising 3 beautiful children Evelyn, Elena and Ethan. We lived in the small town of Steilacoom, but recently moved into Gig Harbor on rural acreage to enjoy some country living. I enjoy fishing, golfing, and taking care of my chickens, but mostly I enjoy spending time with my family.
I graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science in 2008, amidst the economic financial crisis. I quickly learned first-hand the world owed me and my family absolutely nothing. Finding work where I could, I worked in construction installing commercial HVAC systems to make ends meet. To better the life of my family, I eventually found my way into the insurance and financial industry focusing on the senior market in 2012. I grew a team of insurance producers to become the #3 team in the nation. I found that providing peace of mind with insurance protection was an ideal foundation for becoming a financial advisor. I have passionately served my local community for the past 8 years helping to educate and protect my clients while learning their distinctly unique personal and economic situations.
