Prior to becoming a Financial Representative with Northwestern Mutual Life I worked for seven years in the audit and tax areas of public accounting in Chicago.  The foundation of my education began as the youngest of five children of a father and mother in Janesville Wisconsin who were highly committed to excellence. 

Beyond my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, my advanced studies started with four years of Vietnam era service in the U.S. Army Security Agency.  With the help of the GI Bill, I continued in school to acquire my JD and CPA credentials.

I have lived in Chicago since my discharge from the Army.  My wife and I are the parents of four adult children.
