Hi, I'm Derek!

I'm not like most financial advisors. It's not my goal to gather your assets or to sell you products. Instead, my focus is helping you plan for those big milestones in life. To do this, I developed the "PharmD3 Planning Process."

I specialize in working with mid-career professionals and pre-retirees, using my customized process as our source of navigation.

The result? Freedom from worrying about the future, so you can enjoy more of today.

I am located south of Minneapolis MN and work with clients locally and across the country.

Whatever your vision of financial success is, I've got the expertise, creativity, and solutions to get you there. I look forward to our work together!
