My team and I partner with progressive employers to craft relevant, sustainable benefit programs. Taking a holistic approach to benefits means looking at more than just cost; it considers the entire invested effort that goes into creating and managing the employee benefit platform. I have been practicing this approach for over 15 years, during which time I have been recognized as a Top Broker in Employee Benefits by publications such as Seattle Business Magazine and Insurance Journal. Prior to joining AHT as a Principal and Shareholder, I ran the Technology Industry Practice Group at a Top 5 National brokerage firm. I regularly participate in industry panels and serve as a mentor for other consultants within AHT. I have assisted in building many of the benefit programs for the most recognizable “Best Employers” and “Fastest Growing Employers”, both locally and nationally. When all the above fails to impress, I resort to my stockpile of insurance-related jokes.

Outside of work, I spend my time with my wife, Sarah, and our young son, Emmett. We spend a lot of time stacking blocks, reading books and going on walks to the park. I am an avid cyclist, dog lover, IPA drinker and coffee aficionado — basically, the definition of a Northwesterner. I even have a beard, glasses and frequent farmers’ markets.
