Even while holding various positions in the public and private sectors for well over a decade, I always had more than a casual interest in personal finance. It wasn’t until 2006 when I decided to jump into the field professionally. In 2008, after obtaining valuable experience working as a financial advisor at Thrivent Financial and armed with my newly minted CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation, I decided to open my own FEE-ONLY financial planning practice.
Superior Financial was launched under the belief that it is possible to provide high quality, financial planning and investment advice at a reasonable cost and without the glaring conflicts of interest present with most advisor-client relationships. I am especially privileged to help ordinary people achieve their most important life goals and I am honored by the trust my clients put in me.
My wife Sarah and I live in Rochester, MN where we have four children. Away from work, I spend much of my time with family and friends and stay actively involved with my church and in the Rochester community. I enjoy an active lifestyle including biking, hiking and traveling. I continually strive to live out my personal financial mantra:
Protect you and your loved ones.
Save early and often.
Spend the rest to enjoy life!
