I came to First Western Federal Savings Bank with nearly 15 years of experience in different segments of the financial services industry. Prior to joining FWFSB, I was FINRA Series 7 and 66 licensed as an investment advisor. I also have experience with real estate investing, international business development, sales, and in the tax industry. I earned my Bachelors of Science in Finance from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln.

After living and working in several areas of the country, my wife and I came back to our roots in South Dakota to raise our beautiful daughter. Outside of the bank, you will often find me outdoors either golfing, camping, or simply relaxing on the patio. During the winter months, I enjoy down-hill skiing and watching college football – or better yet, taking weekend golf trips South with my wife!

I am involved with several community service organizations, none more enjoyable than coaching my daughter’s softball team.
