How do I help our clients live a richer life?
My path to helping people live richer lives began on the other side of the table, as a Brighton Jones client. From my first meeting, I appreciated the service nature of the company; the idea that Brighton Jones would protect and preserve the jump-start on life afforded me by the NFL. Beginning with my time as an accounting major at Washington State University through my years working as part of the client service team at Brighton Jones, I have witnessed firsthand the value of a financial plan. Now in my role as director of financial education, I am fortunate enough to pursue my passion for educating the next generation. Our team will be leading the firm’s first financial literacy curriculum for teenagers and young adults. In everything I do, I serve as an ambassador for the philosophy and culture that is Brighton Jones.

How do I spend my time outside of Brighton Jones?
As a new father, I have come to understand that time outside of the office will be spent in a playhouse or rolling around on the ground. My wife and I enjoy heading back to Pullman for Cougar gatherings, the bliss of being done with a tough workout, and watching whatever the latest TV series we are on. In my alone time, I am an avid reader and have kept a journal since college.
