I was born and raised in Utah. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Communications from BYU and a Masters in Management from Touro University International. I have been married for 37 years to my beautiful wife, Vicki, who is an Early Intervention Developmentalist in the local school district. We have been blessed with four children and eight grandchildren with two more on the way.
I began my military career through the Air Force ROTC at Brigham Young University (BYU) and served as a Special Agent for the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI). After seven years of active duty, we left the Air Force and moved to West Bountiful, Utah where we still reside. When we returned to Utah I transferred into the Utah Army National Guard and later the Army Reserves. I served a 12-month combat tour as an intelligence officer in Iraq 2006-2007 training Iraqi Soldiers. I completed my 32 years of service as a Team Chief at the Army Operations Center at the Pentagon. I retired from the US Army in Dec 2012 as a Lieutenant Colonel (LTC).
My financial background began in 1987 as an investigator pursuing Property and Casualty insurance fraud for criminal prosecution for fourteen years as a Senior Special Agent with the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). In 2003, I started a small company named Freakin Genius LLC that dabbles in real estate and am currently employed as a Wealth Coach (American Dream Rehabilitation Specialist) for Tardus Wealth Strategies.
My main passions in life are my wife, my family and my country! My new found passion is Tardus. I became a coach because I found a way to help people. To me, Tardus “IS” the American Dream. It is the first program that I have found in my life that actually liberates people from the chains of debt and financial oppression. Most of my life there have been times when I had some money, but no time to enjoy it, and there were times when I had time and no money. Tardus provides the means to have both time and money at the same time! All you have to do is follow the plan and feed your Snowball! Every Tardus client is a debt-free millionaire, they just might not know it yet! My job is simply to help get them there!
I have achieved most of my “life-long” goals but the biggest goal I am now working on, thanks to Tardus, is to financially set up my children, my grand-children and my great-grandchildren for success and freedom in their lives. Money is just a tool, not the end goal.
I love to travel, cook, sing and to go jogging. My favorite dish is Roasted Cashews with Curry Chicken over Cous-cous.
