Planning Specialties

I grew up in Hastings, NE in an Ozzy and Harriet kind of world. I had two loving parents who supported me and taught me how to treat people, be responsible, work hard and live a content, but relatively frugal life. I started work at a young age and was very active in sports. I played a year of baseball at a college in Alabama and then transferred to Nebraska for my sophomore year to focus on school (and my social life). Through those efforts I learned a lot of great lessons related to hard work, working as a team, leadership, building relationships and what it takes to succeed.  

Additional Information

I love working with clients and building Flagstone. However, my real passion and purpose is my family.  My wife Jill and I have been married for longer than 21 years. We have a 16-year-old son named Sam, a 12-year-old daughter named Sophie and a Labrador retriever named Rocky. We spend a lot of time watching our kids play sports, playing Uno, Monopoly and other games and trying to capture as many experiences as we can before they are out of the house. I also enjoy golfing, reading, listening to audio books and podcasts, and spending time with friends.
