About Me

I have spent my career in sales and business management; recently selling and retiring from my own company after 36 years.

I advised my mother on a HECM a number of years ago and it served her well as her assets dwindled and she could no longer manage her affairs. I practice what I preach. My wife Carol and I recently entered into a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, primarily as a hedge against future market sequence of returns. I have always felt the the equity in one’s home was a largely ignored asset that needed to be leveraged. The HECM has a very strong value proposition for us baby boomers and I think it important to be considered in one’s retirement planning.

My volunteer service through the years with Habitat for Humanity, Kairos Prison Ministry and CareNet Pregnancy Centers align well with my desire to engage with others and offer my life experience.
