I am a proud second-generation Wealth Management Advisor and a partner with the Iles Schropp Group, now serving fourth-generation clients. I was honored to be named to the Forbes "Top Next-Generation Wealth Advisors" list from publications in 2021*, 2020, 2018, and the inaugural list in 2017 as well as the Forbes "Next-Gen Best-In-State Wealth Advisors" list for the state of Michigan in 2019. As one of the team's senior partners, I am honored to work closely with the many clients served by our team. We work diligently to address the wealth management needs of many individuals, families, and business owners throughout the United States. In addition to the individuals and families we serve, our team also serves many large foundations, endowments, and other nonprofit institutions, as well as corporate retirement plans. I first joined Merrill and the Iles Schropp Group in 2005. Much like the rest of the Iles Schropp Group, I am committed to continued education and lifelong learning, as evidenced by professional designations obtained early in my career and other credentials and training obtained since. In that spirit of lifelong learning, I am well positioned to guide the families and institutions we proudly serve. On a personal note, I live in Saginaw Township with my wife (Chelsea), son (Brayden), daughter (Brooklyn), and dog (Sofia). Together we enjoy being active in our community and church, pursuing our varied interests in many outdoor activities, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. In my personal free time, I enjoy a variety of interests, including endurance sports, boating and water sports, artistic projects, collecting unique bourbon bottles, learning the game of golf, and spending time in Northern Michigan. I am a proud graduate of Central Michigan University and am involved locally in many professional organizations and community endeavors.
