Personal

I serve my clients as Senior Advisor with Buttonwood Financial Group, LLC. Working closely with individuals and families to simplify the complexity that comes with wealth, the Buttonwood Team serves as a Family CFO, coordinating and integrating tax, insurance, estate planning, investments, cash flow, retirement, education, and business strategies to achieve client specific goals.

My wife, Margaret, and I have two grown children.  I enjoy Kansas City’s arts scene, travel, yoga, fly fishing and just about anything that involves family or friends.
