I grew up in small town Iowa. I enlisted in the United States Air Force after high school, serving 8 1/2 years, with a tour to Southeast Asia during the Vietnam war. After my Air Force enlistment ended I enrolled at University of Wisconsin. In 1978 I began my career in the insurance business, adding investments in 1987. I have been married to my wife Connie for 49 years and we have 2 sons and 7 grandchildren. I enjoy traveling, fishing, spending time with family, and touring around the USA on my motorcycle. In 2012 I traveled to all 4 corners of the United States on my motorcycle in 28 dyas. A bucket list item accomplished!
I have experienced nearly all the life events that impact my clients which allows me to empathize and understand the challenges they face as they move through life. My career has been especially rewarding as I look back on the many people I have worked with. I enjoy my work immensely and plan to serve clients  and the community for many years into the future.
