I have been fascinated by radio waves 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).

Click here to read my amateur radio story (page 28) in a recent Twin Cities DX Association Profile.

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)
