"What I enjoy most about what I do is the chance to spend time with people while working to create solutions for their lives, then putting those solutions into action.
"I am proud to be a 4th generation Des Moines native, a husband of 47 years, father to three children, and grandfather to seven.
Despite college degrees, mine from the University of Iowa and Drake University, and a handful of professional designations, my real “education” has come through practical experience. It’s the kind of experience gained by working in diverse areas of the financial world for so many years. It's the experience gained by weathering bad times as well as good.
The relationships formed through those years have become one of the most meaningful parts of my life, and the reason that “retirement” in any conventional sense doesn’t hold much appeal to me.
I find what I do every day to be as stimulating as ever! (Although I admit that Friday afternoons ARE reserved for my golf habit, and other times are dedicated to my Lion’s Club group, my church, inner city ministry, and fitness kickboxing.")
