I have been married to my beautiful bride Gayla for almost 30 incredible years. We have three children, a son and two daughters, all of whom, much to our surprise and excitement have found their passions and livelihood in the arts, through graphic design, music, photography, and textile design. We could not be more proud of the drive and commitment we have seen from them and are truly amazed that such creative individuals could come from us. We are also thrilled that we became grandparents over the last few years and now have four beautiful grandkids.
My family and I are actively involved at Kensington Community Church and feel blessed to be a part of a community where God is clearly at work. Finally after spending time with our children and being a happy Grandpa, I look forward to playing as many rounds of golf as possible with my buddies.
I began my financial career in 1986 after graduating from Michigan State University and then continued on to acquire my professional designations and credentials of a Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) and a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) from The American College. I have also received a Wharton certificate for completing the course work for Retirement Planning in Pennsylvania.
As important as my education has been to my career, one of the most important business decisions I made was beginning a partnership with David Bond. While most partnerships dissolve over time, I have been blessed to work and partner with my closest friend for over 25 years. With the help of our Financial Planning Team, Clayton, John, David & Brent, along with our Administrators, Sallie & Michelle, we have received many awards at various levels throughout our careers together. Our most valued reward though, has been and will continue to be the long lasting relationships that we have built with our clients.
