Positivity is one of my core values - I strive to find the silver lining and use that positivity as a catalyst to move things forward. It is amazing to see how a good attitude and a clear path forward can help people succeed.
As one of the owners and a Financial Advisor at Encore Financial, my specialization lies in financial planning, with a particular focus on understanding the tax impact on my clients' overall goals. I firmly believe that considering the tax implications is crucial to developing effective financial strategies. With over 15 years of experience in the financial industry, I have dedicated myself to providing comprehensive financial planning, investment management, tax preparation, and tax planning services to my clients.
Throughout my career, I have worked at JRA Financial, as well as Schlenner Wenner & Co. These experiences have allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the financial industry and refine my skills in serving clients effectively. I am a Certified Public Accountant® (CPA®) and most recently obtained the Behavioral Financial Advisor® (BFA®) designation, which gives me insight into the psychological aspects of finance and decision-making.
I’m originally from Russell, Minnesota, and currently reside in Hanover, Minnesota, with my wife, Kelly, and our two children, Taden and Anneka. Being a dad is the most rewarding (and challenging) job I’ve ever had…and I love everything about it! In the rare times I’m not soaking up time with my family, you can find me on the golf course, taking in a live concert, or sitting on the deck with a nice glass of Bourbon.
