I'm a proud father of two boys and happily married to my wife, Raisa. We were married in 2012 and have focused our family on leading a Christian life focused on stewardship. Our sons, Gregory & Isaac, inspire us to create a legacy they'd be proud of. Raisa, passionate about our community, volunteers at our small community Christian school, working to reduce tuition costs for parents.
I come from humble beginnings, born on an Oregon farm. Growing up, I worked various blue-collar jobs for successful small business owners. This path led me to start my first company at 19, sparking my entrepreneurial spirit. Over the years, I ventured into commercial construction, transportation, consulting, and real estate, eventually finding my passion in financial planning.
In 2018, I founded Hope Wealth Planning to guide clients on their financial journeys. I assist business owners, retirees, and busy families, and specifically enjoy supporting women in retirement. Their trust motivates me to continuously expand my financial expertise, pursuing designations like RICP and ChFC (Retirement Income Certified Professional and Chartered Financial Consultant.)
Outside work, we relish Oregon's outdoors—snowmobiling in winter and embracing activities like boating, fishing, archery hunting, and enjoying movies and books. We eagerly anticipate the return of snowmobiling season.
Licensed with Series 7, 66, and a Life Insurance license in Oregon, I'm committed to helping individuals and families secure their financial futures.
Proud to be part of the SmartVestor Pro network. It allows me the chance to hear stories from our clients and share our journey from simple beginnings to help inspire others to pursue their financial goals, even the ones that seem impossible. We see proof that anyone can pursue them every day.
