Host of SmartWealth Radio and founder of the Seven SmartWealth Savings Strategies, Steve has been a life long resident of WA State.


In 1985, Steve earned a Master’s Degree in Education specializing in Instructional Communications and has taught students of all ages from grade school to college level.


At the end of his career, he taught business math and personal finance to High School students. Many students said it was the most useful class they had ever taking.


Steve joking refers to himself as a “financial plumber.”  He helps people patch up the leaks in their financial plumbing and finds new streams of cash flow for retirement.  Steve has a passion for giving his clients the very best financial tools for retirement.  His clients love his careful attention to detail in every step of the SmartWealth Strategies process.


Spending time with his adult children, their spouses, and his five granddaughters and one grandson are some of his greatest joys second only to the quality time he spends with Sandy (his wife of 40 years) and their third child, Jonathan, now 17 years old.


In addition to hosting SmartWealth Radio, Steve is a skilled seminar presenter who loves to see the light go on in the minds of his adult “students.”  He is also a book author with many articles in print or blogs and is an inventor with several patent-pending innovations in the works.
