John has worked for a number of firms, most recently Merrill Lynch, where he was the sales manager for the Seattle Complex and in charge of the new advisor training program. These firms all had one thing in common, they were not as client-focused as John felt they should be. Along with two other partners, John decided it was time to start a firm that was going to put his clients first and allow him to work with clients the way he wanted to work with them. So, he started Tallus. John began his career in 1994 and has focused building his experience on risk management strategies which involve a combination of hedging, income generating, fixed income, and option strategies. With a solid background in investments and a place to implement his ideas, John continually strived to add to the quality of his relationships with his clients. Having realized the impact the economy and stock market has had on investors over the last several years, John continually analyzes the current welfare of the markets and where we are as investors. This allows him to make the necessary and well informed decisions for his clients. John grew up in Great Falls, Montana and graduated from Gonzaga University in 1994, becoming registered later that year. John currently holds series 7, 8, 9, and 63 registrations with LPL Financial, 65 registration with Financial Advocates Investment Management, as well as insurance licenses. He lives in Seattle with his wife and son and is an avid tennis competitor.
