Helping to Maximize your Tomorrows while Protecting your Todays

I have a deep-seated passion to help people and businesses improve their current situation and achieve their long term financial goals. Prior to joining IPG I was a client for 12 years which gave me a unique client perspective and over 30 years of experience as a manufacturing and financial executive. I changed paths, to help bring clients the same experience that has been so impactful to me and my family. 

My focus is in four critical areas of their financial lives; cost efficient wealth accumulation, ultimate protection at the lowest possible risk, cash flow optimization, and a sustainable retirement income plan while leaving a legacy for those they care about. As a result of better positioning in these four areas, my clients can experience better results with factors beyond their control such as: lawsuits, inflation, health incidents, job loss, and market instabilities. 

My clients rely on me to provide specialized coordination, direction and recommendations for any financial and economic decision they are facing. Whether as a facilitator or just someone to listen, I am a trusted professional to help clients make better informed decisions in determining their financial futures. 

When I am not helping people realize their financial dreams, I love to read, play guitar, garden and tinker around my property. I take great interest in Biblical archaeology and current affairs.
