I found a passion for owning my own business at a young age and have done so ever since. In 2001 I began coaching and mentoring high-income earners to improve business results and find more satisfaction in life. While I have experienced the fruits of success, life hasn't been without the bitter taste of occasional failures. I prefer to think of those setbacks as an MBA from which I learned a lot and choose not to retake those classes.

At this stage of my life, I have noticed an opportunity to make bigger, lasting differences in the lives of my clients. I created GPS to help navigate my clients safely through some of life's challenges.

My wife of almost 40 years and I have built our lives in Kirkland, WA where we raised three children. Our children have now grown and left the nest, allowing us to welcome two grandchildren. We are blessed that all our family members live within 30 minutes of us, and we get to see them often. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and when I'm not doing that you can find me sailing, crabbing, biking, and officiating weddings (13 so far).
