Personal

I am blessed to be able to serve clients and community in so many ways!  In my primary role as President of Buttonwood Financial, our Team focuses on the financial success for hundreds of families.  Through Buttonwood Art Space, 31w31.org and Buttonwood Foundation, I have the ability to positively impact the arts and local non-profit community.

Outside of these endeavors, time spent with my wonderful wife, Wendy, is enjoyed on the trail with our horses, cooking a great meal or enjoying dinner out; supporting one of KC’s locally owned restaurants or jazz clubs.
