Senior Vice President | Portfolio Manager
My 18 years of experience in the financial services industry has provided me with tremendous experiences in a wide array of markets and new paradigms. This experience has taught me the valued insight to managing risk in portfolios in order to optimize returns in uncertain times.

I was born and raised in Blaine, Minnesota and attended the University of Minnesota. I started my own business at the age of 16 in the Arabian Horse Industry and still maintain involvement today. In my younger days I was a semi-professional soccer player in California as a goalkeeper.

I began my career in the financial services industry in 1999 with Dean Witter and through 6 mergers or acquisitions I left Morgan Stanley to co-found MBKS Family Office in 2016. My team and I realize the struggles investors face today. My focus as your independent financial advisor is to customize, educate and present strategies that put your goals first and effect those strategies in a way that minimizes risk and maximizes returns. At MBKS Family Office our focus is to treat your family as if you are our own.

When outside of the office, my son Nik is an accomplished soccer player and my daughter Chloe loves to dance. My wife and I still are involved in Arabian Horses so you will find us traveling the country to various competitions and events.
