Professional Experience & Areas of Focus

I began my career in the investment industry in 2007, just prior to the financial crisis, at a long-short midcap hedge fund. As a lifelong student of the market, I will never forget that period of time and experiences. After that I was an investment analyst for UBS's wealth management team in Grand Rapids, MI. Fifth Third approached me soon after to become an associate portfolio manager, and after five years I became a portfolio manager for Fifth Third's Private Bank.

Personal & Community Participation

My wife, Diane, and I have one son. We currently spend most of our time out on the farm, on the lake, or doing outdoor activities, hobbies, or sports.
