With the Field Director role, he spent the majority of his time designing financial plans to help his clients achieve financial security for their future, and the remainder coaching new representatives to do the same.  His 2011 appointment to Managing Director resulted from his great success in this leadership role, and spends equal time coaching Advisors and working to be at the center of his clients’ financial lives.

Currently, Brad’s financial planning practice focuses on Retirement Income Planning, Closely Held Business Planning & Executive Benefits.

Brad's passion in life is helping other people see their true potential and he realizes this through both Northwestern Mutual and his involvement in LCBC Church-Harrisburg.  He graduated in 2003 from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Finance with a minor in Legal Environment of Business. 

Brad, his wife Nikki, and their son Graham live on the west side of the Susquehanna River in the picturesque town of Mechanicsburg. With all the charm Central Pennsylvania has to offer, they enjoy running and walking their dog, Charlie. They also attend church at LCBC - Harrisburg.
