Rod carries an HP 12C and can speak the language of investment, but he is not just a numbers guy. He is also a thinker and doer. Throughout his career, Rod has brought the quantitative and the qualitative together, blending in communication skills that include 30 years of experience working in the board room. His education includes a history degree from Stanford and an MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business.

Rod grew up in the Pacific Northwest, but lived and worked in three other corners of the country before returning here. He has worked with clients in places as diverse as Chapel Hill, Boston, Sacramento and Vancouver, BC, and he easily navigates between different accents, attitudes and values.

Rod comes home to Bainbridge Island, where he lives with his wife of 24 years and two high-school children, and where he swims regularly on a coached masters team. He also enjoys wilderness travel, both on foot and by sea kayak.
