A financial industry professional with over 25 years’ experience, I have a passion for helping people. Deciding to purchase or refinance your home can seem overwhelming, I’m here for you. Whether it’s your first home or your forever home, I will guide you through the mortgage process every step of the way.   

Originally from Waterloo, I received a B.A. in finance from the University of Northern Iowa. I have lived in Urbandale since 2004 with my wife Julie and our two daughters Kara and Lexi. In my spare time, I enjoy running and love cheering on the UNI Panthers and Kansas City Chiefs.  I serve on the Johnston Scholarship Foundation Board of Directors and also volunteer as the financial secretary for the Knights of Columbus.   

I look forward to assisting you in choosing the best possible mortgage option for your unique situation.
