My family moved to Boise in 1990, and I have loved it ever since. I started my career at Northwestern Mutual in 2000. My most productive days start with an early morning, tough workout, followed by meditation, leading our team at Harmon Smith, and meeting with several of our awesome clients!
I am a board member at The Make-a-Wish Foundation of Idaho and a member of Entrepreneurs’ Organization. I also serve on the compliance board for the Financial Representative’s Association of Northwestern Mutual.
In my downtime, I enjoy hiking, college football, and spending time with my family.
I've been enjoying Idaho's backyard for 30+ years. Skiing is my favorite pastime and over the last couple of years I traded my mountain bike in for golf clubs. My most productive mornings start with meditation and a Pilates workout.
My wife Traci and I have a blended family of four grown children. We enjoy live music and entertaining our friends.
In my down time you can find me working in my yard with the Grateful Dead playing in the background or reading a book.
