How do I help our clients live a richer life?
I have worked directly with high net worth individuals and families for close to 25 years. The experience and knowledge I have gained from those relationships have helped shape my perspective on what clients need and deserve. Going the extra mile, doing the unexpected, and being accessible and responsive are just a few ways I can help clients live a richer life. We have exceptional collaborative resources at Brighton Jones to help address our clients’ financial needs, but it’s often times the little things we do that can make the biggest difference in people’s lives.

How do I spend time outside of Brighton Jones?
I live in Gig Harbor with my wife and three kids. I spend a great deal of my free time coaching a variety of youth sports teams. My life was greatly impacted in a positive way by many coaches growing up, and I feel it’s important to be a good role model for today’s youth and help instill some of the life skills sports can provide. I love the outdoors and everything that the Pacific Northwest has to offer from that perspective. Hiking, golfing, hunting and fishing are my primary passions, but I love to watch a good Western—preferably in black and white.
