By William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of Circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of Chance

My head is bloody but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.


Plan Now for Your Future

You are the captain. Let me, my team and network of specialists help you navigate your ship through the sometimes calm and sometimes stormy waters of a personal financial plan.

Financial security is a major objective in each of our lives. You try to do what's right for those you care about, but the wrong decision can often undermine the best of intentions. To navigate your ship, I focus on educating my clients about their choices, options and strategies for a comprehensive plan. When we sail into a harbor needing specialized knowledge, I utilize my network of specialists as harbor pilots to navigate our way.

Since 1990, I have worked to make a difference in people’s lives as a Financial Advisor with Northwestern Mutual. I am passionate about addressing your financial concerns and creating custom solutions for your family and your business. I deliver these solutions with the integrity and expertise that support long-term client relationships.

Let me help you navigate your way to a secure financial future.
