Born and raised in Colorado. My wife, Julie, and I currently reside in Castle Rock, CO. I attended Western State College in Gunnison, CO where I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree. I have held many positions over the years from teaching music to selling band instruments, selling appliances and electronics and I have also sold men’s apparel. I decided to go back to school to earn my Masters of Business Administration. The reason to go back was prompted by wanting to learn more about finance and insurance. During my studies, Become Your Own Banker, by Nelson Nash, became a topic during one of the courses. This discussion caused me to buy many books on the subject. I saw an advertisement on a local TV program that talked about Become the Banker. After seeing the program for several months, my wife and I attended our 1st seminar about Become the Banker. After starting our own banks, we decided that this was where I need to put my efforts to help other people enjoy the benefits of the Become the Banker program.




After 15 years in the credit and mortgage industry, I wanted to do something that would help people be more financially stable, and withstand, or totally avoid the financial loss many have experienced even after doing what they thought was the right thing to do according to so called conventional wisdom. I believe in financial clarity, educating and simplifying the information so that you can see where your money is going and stop loosing it. Become the Banker has helped many people keep their money even after they think they have spent it. I enjoy explaining how you can build wealth, be financially free, and open up your world of possibilities with Become the Banker. It's time to take control of your financial destiny.




Craig has been working as a trusted adviser to seniors as Professor Medicare. His agency has helped over 1000 clients navigate Medicare's alphabet soup. In doing so, he has seen a trend. Few of his clients feel secure about having a great retirement, and many of those people have consumer debt that is strangling their ability to retire in comfort and enjoy the fruits of a lifetime of work. Traditional retirement savings plans are loaded with restrictions, risks, and many have huge tax burdens. In 2017, Craig met Joseph and Jordan Quijano, and it changed how he looks at both debt and how to retire. It also changed how he serves his clients and their families. Both he and his wife, Donna, have Become their own Banker. His son, Aiden, is also his own Banker. Craig truly enjoys showing Seniors how they and their children can be debt free in 9 years or less.
