As an Iowa native, Steve grew up with great midwestern values and work ethic.  Steve attended Iowa State University and studied finance.  Having that strong family work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit, Steve decided to start his own financial services practice in 2006.  Being impressed by the phenomenal reputation, values, financial strength, and stability of Northwestern Mutual, Steve decided to start his practice as a Northwestern Mutual advisor.  As an independent Northwestern Mutual advisor, Steve has access to some of the greatest products and planning ideas in the financial services industry.  This decision to join such a great family has proven to be life changing.  Steve has been able to build a strong, solid practice where he gets to help, and touch people’s lives every day.  As a small business owner and family man, he understands the challenges families and businesses face as they make key financial decisions. 

Steve and his wife Nicole have three children:  Samantha, Ryan, and Charlie. Samantha is a marketing director and lives in Des Moines.   Ryan is an engineer and currently lives in Ohio.  And lastly, Charlie, their youngest, keeps Steve and Nicole on their toes by encouraging them to visit the national parks helping Charlie particpate in the Junior Ranger Program.  They spend many weekends camping, biking, hiking, and kayaking as a family.  When they aren’t out traveling, they enjoy trying new restaurants and rooting for Iowa State – go Cyclones!
