Growing up just outside of Perrysburg, Ohio, Gary developed a love for the game of golf at an early age.  This love drove him to Methodist University in North Carolina where he was a member of the nationally ranked men’s golf team.  In 5 years, Gary was able to obtain his bachelor’s in business administration and an MBA in organizational leadership & structure.  Gary returned to Ohio in 2012, where he began his career with Northwestern Mutual.

Gary joined my team in 2014 and assists me by working closely with my clients to provide excellent planning and support. He is Life, Accident, and Health Insurance licensed, as well as Series 7 and 63 securities licensed.

Gary and his wife Erin are enjoying their new life together!
