Thank you for visiting my QRZ page.

I have been fascinated by radios 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 now a Financial Planner based in the Twin Cities of Minnesota since 2001 with clients around the country. I have three grown children and my wife of 25+ years is my COO and business partner.

I am also a published author. You can find my career-management book Fire Yourself! on Amazon.com (click the cover)



QSL Info:

I upload to LoTW every day

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

I am a member of the Minnesota Wireless Association 

and the Twin City DX Association.

I am a Skywarn volunteer and a Volunteer Examiner (VE). I monitor the Minnetonka/N0BVE repeater on 145.450 when I'm in my Radio Room.


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