• Financial Tip

    Financial Tip:

    There is more to planning for retirement than the financials. Be sure to have an idea of what you will be retiring to. Whether that be a hobby, a cause, being a grandparent, or something else...have a plan for your new 9-5!

    Fun Facts:

    • I am #89,482 on the Green Bay Packers season ticket waiting list. I started at well over #100,000 back in 2013.
    • I have seen a game in 19 MLB stadiums, 11 Big Ten football stadiums, and 6 NFL stadiums. I am trying to get to all of them!
    • I grew up a die-hard Hawkeye fan but ended up going to Iowa State for my bachelor’s degree. It was hard to wear cardinal and gold at first but I’m glad I did because that is where my wife and I met.

    My wife Anne and I live in Urbandale with our daughter Hallie and Mini Goldendoodle Lambeau. We enjoy spending time outdoors, checking out new travel destinations, and spending time with friends and family. In addition to time with my family, I am a self-proclaimed “lawn guy” and an avid sports fan. I am always looking for another project to keep me busy or another stadium to travel to. To round out my “free time,” I officiate high school football games on Friday nights.
