I am a proud graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I had the privilege of walking on and earning my Black Shirt. During my time at the university, I excelled as a cornerback on the football team and became a three-year starter. I am honored to have received CoSIDA Academic All-American honors, as well as being recognized as a three-time CoSIDA Academic All-District and three-time Academic All-Big 12 Conference athlete. Additionally, I had the privilege of being part of the Brook Berringer Citizenship Team and Unity Council.
Continuing my academic journey, I pursued a master's in business administration (MBA) from Creighton University. I am proud to have served on the Millard Public Schools Board for over seven years, and my dedication to education was acknowledged when I received the "Expanding Horizon Award" (08-09) for my work with Millard Public Schools.
As an active member of my community, I serve on the Elder Board at Brookside Church. My commitment to excellence and community involvement has been recognized through various accolades. In 2011, I was honored to be named one of the "40 under 40" by the Midlands Business Journal, and in 2014, I was selected as one of the "Ten Outstanding Young Omahans" (TOYO) by The Omaha Junior Chamber (Jaycees).
I am proud to have achieved recognition as part of the Million Dollar Round Table, an honor bestowed upon the top 5% in the entire financial services industry. In my professional career, I am privileged to be a member of the "Top of the Table," an exclusive forum for the world's most successful financial services professionals.*
My dedication to continuous learning and professional growth is evident through my accomplishments. I hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) mark from the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., as well as the AIF®, Accredited Investment Fiduciary® designation. Additionally, I have completed extensive training in Business Owner and Executive Solutions (BOES). To further enhance my expertise, I attended the Investments and Wealth Institute taught in conjunction with the Yale School of Management, which led me to become a Certified Private Wealth Advisor (CPWA®) professional.
On a personal note, I am blessed to share my life with my wife, Kirstin. Together, we have the joy of raising our four children: Henry, Graham, Samantha, and Teddy.
