Family and faith.
Those are the two words that describe who I am and what drives me.
From a small child, my parents instilled in me the importance of family and the importance of faith. Growing up we were always together. Whether it was fishing with my dad and his buddies, camping, taking skiing trips or just playing Monopoly, we were doing it together. Faith was also central to my childhood. My dad was the director of Youth for Christ in Traverse City. Through this experience I saw many broken homes and relationships. I witnessed what happens when faith and family are not at the center of your life. Those memories have stayed with me and helped shape who I am today.
In 2000 I married the love of my life, Nikki. We are blessed to have twin boys Noah and Isaiah. We have tried to create the same family and faith centered life that Nikki and I grew up in. I hope they look back at their childhood with the same fondness and memories of togetherness as I do.
When we’re not out having fun skiing, boating or hunting, we are involved in our church and Single MOMM’s here in Traverse City.
I am proud to serve on the board of Single MOMM and am an Elder at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Traverse City.
I am one of the Founders and Principals of Blueprint Partners in Traverse City, Michigan. I have been in the financial services industry since 2003. Over the past 16 years, I have helped many families navigate their financial lives. I have built a lot of great friendships, shared in many joys and many losses, and feel extremely blessed to be a part of so many people’s lives.
