I'm an Edward Jones financial advisor because I love working with clients. I am proud to be a third-generation Alaskan. My parents ran a small business in Alaska for over 50 years. I found inspiration in their hard work to become someone who helps others plan for their financial future. I see my purpose as a financial advisor is to be your ultimate resource, guide and motivator—the one to help you uncover what matters most. My job is to help you set goals, design and implement the best strategy, and then monitor your progress and update your strategy to help achieve your dreams. I delight in seeing satisfied clients who find my work both helpful and useful. I enjoy working as a team alongside you, your CPA, attorney and other professionals on which you depend to determine the most beneficial financial strategy for you and your family.
In 1998, I began my Edward Jones career as a financial advisor here on corner of Jewel Lake and Dimond in Anchorage, Alaska. I earned a bachelor's degree from Willamette University in Salem, OR. In addition, I received the AAMS® designation in 2005, the CFP® professional designation in 2006 and the ChFC® professional designation in 2019. My branch office administrators, Terri Silberer and Vanessa Carpenter, have over 40 years of combined experience in the field and are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible.
I love serving my community as the current vice president for Alaska Adoption Services. In the past, I have been president for Anchorage International Rotary Club, the Anchorage Estate Planning Council and the Anchorage Concert Association. My wife, Shelley, and I have two school-aged children, Anika and David. I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, basketball, soccer and being a dad. I work hard to enable them to have many of the same opportunities as I did growing up in the Last Frontier. I delight in raising a fourth generation in this beautiful state I call home.
