About Me

I am a Milwaukee area native and have worked in the Greater Milwaukee area for over 15 years. My professional experience includes 7 years as a sales professional for Frito Lay - Pepsi where I worked full-time while also attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where I earned my Bachelors of Business Administration with a major in Finance. Upon graduation in 2008, I became a District Sales Manager for Frito Lay covering Southeastern Wisconsin.

My banking career began in 2010 when I started as a Small Business Junior Lender. I eventually made my way into an underwriting role where I became a Small Business Senior Credit Analyst. I then made the decision to apply all of that experience and knowledge gained on the underwriting side of the transaction and move back into a customer facing role making SBA Loans.

I live in Sussex, WI with my wife and three children ages 6, 4 and 2. In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors, preferably on the golf course or activities with my family.
