I am originally from Chandler, MN.  After graduating from high school, I attended the University of Sioux Falls.  I received a major in Business Administration with concentrations in Marketing and Finance.  I was an intern with Northwestern Mutual from 2004 to the end of 2006.  I joined the company full-time in 2007.  I am blessed to be married to my beautiful wife Crystal, who is also a part of our team.  We have two children, MaKinli and Bennett along with our dog Kota.

Outside of running my business, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.  I love all types of sports from playing golf, hunting, fishing, working out, OCR Racing, playing basketball, trail running and attending high school and college sporting events.  My family and I are loyal fans of the Minnesota Gophers, Vikings, Twins and Timberwolves. 

Another passion of mine is being engaged in the community.  I believe in always seeking Christ’s purpose for our lives and servings others.  We value an abundance mindset and intentionality in all aspects of our life.  These are core values of my faith, my family and my firm.  My family is actively involved with Central Church in Sioux Falls, SD.  I serve on the board of directors for “Kingdom Capital Fund.”  I enjoy supporting other charitable organizations in our area that my family is passionate about. 

Personal growth is a priority in my life.  I spend my downtime reading and listening to devotions, personal development books or podcasts along with a great parable.  I feel it is important to bring a positive energy to everyone around me.  I am always seeking to inspire others by leading positively and encouraging them to succeed.
