Live life for today, with a solid plan for tomorrow. This is a key value we share with our clients each day and therefore, a central focus of our own lives.

While if left to my own devices, you will likely find me camping with the family, fishing, skiing or training for a long distance endurance race, my wife Nicki along with daughters Brynn (9) and Cora (6) are quickly turning me into a horse person.

Nicki certainly has her biggest smile while on the back of our horses Willie and Lewis.

Cora, when not at gymnastics, is doing flips, hand-springs and rolls through the house along with making up new dance routines. Not to mention dressing up our dog Bivy (what a good sport)!

Nothing seems to make Brynn happier than snuggling close with the chickens, playing with friends or challenging dad to a game of Monopoly!
