When I was a child, I spent hours playing with Legos to build the possessions I dreamed of owning one day. Whether building my future dream home, a cool car, or an airplane that could take me around the world, I remember feeling rewarded by the accomplishment of being able to build 'my dreams.' This time in my youth influenced the views I have today. I believe that with unbiased and objective financial planning and investment advice, anyone can accomplish what they set their mind to.

At Vantage, I value the support of a diverse and highly-talent team. The ability to tap their expertise helps you build a sound plan for a better tomorrow. It fascinates me to learn about your situation and help you define your dreams and goals. With my executive compensation experience, I understand the unique complexities of corporate benefit programs and can help you integrate your workplace benefits into your total financial plan. Together, we will work through the financial planning process so that you can accomplish your aspirations. After all, the sky's the limit.

In my spare time, I can be found boating, fishing and doing home improvement projects. I enjoy giving back by frequently helping my neighbors and family members. I also volunteer at a mentoring program through DePaul's Alumni program. My wife, Ashley, and I have two daughters, Lily and Zoey.
