Areas of Expertise

  • Insurance Strategy
  • Financial Planning


Assisting people in realizing solutions for their financial lives is a passion of mine. I enjoy doing this by listening and providing honest feedback based on my subject matter expertise while building trusted friendships with clients.

Originally from Kirkwood, MO, I have lived in Kansas City since 2008. I live with my wife, Betsey and 3 sons, Jack (9), Will (6) and David (3) in beautiful Brookside where we like to play and watch all kinds of sports.

In my free time, I enjoy volunteering with Cub Scout Troop 16, participating in Rotary Club 13’s Kansas City day, coaching lacrosse, supporting St. Andrews Church and The American Royal.
