Craig enjoys spending time with his kids while coaching youth sports, especially basketball. Much of Craig’s free time is spent huddling up and encouraging teams – very successful ones at that! Craig and his family can usually be spotted at Creighton basketball games; they are a tall and energized bunch! In addition to all things Creighton, Craig enjoys golf and hunting. If you have a few moments for an unforgettable story, ask Craig about the birth of his son, Zachary --- in the kitchen. Above all, he is a proud and devoted husband and dad, and a big fan of…Caddyshack!
Helping business owners confidently migrate from a liquidity event to the next phase of their life is the most rewarding aspect of my job.
