I have been fascinated by RF since I was a kid - from shortwave listening to scanner radios and a ten-year stint in the wireless and telecommunications industry from the early years of cellular telephones to the tech boom (and bust).

I am a Financial Planner and Author based in the Twin Cities of Minnesota since 2001 with clients here and around the country. I have three grown children and my wife of 27+ years is my COO and business partner.


I recently co-authored a career-management book Fire Yourself! on Amazon.com (click the cover)

QSL Info:

I upload to LoTW every day I'm "On The Air"

I will happily confirm eQSL and paper QSL's by email request

No S.A.S.E. or Postage required, domestic or DX





My goal is to achieve awards primarily via LOTW and I achieved WAS and DXCC via LOTW exclusively.
