When I began my Edward Jones career as a financial advisor in Ottawa, my goal was to provide tailored solutions that meet my clients' investment needs based on what's most important to them. That same goal is what makes working with people throughout the community so important to me.

One thing you should know about me is that I hold myself to a high level of dependability and an unmatched degree of integrity and respect for all my clients.

I am originally from Sterling, IL, raised by a hard-working family that has instilled in me the values of positive morals and a strong work ethic.

I graduated from Western Illinois University with a Bachelor of Business degree in economics and a minor in mathematics. I was also the captain of the WIU men's golf team.

My wife, Alyssa, and I enjoy spending days off playing golf at Pine Hills, fishing the scenic Illinois River and hiking at our beautiful state parks.

My branch office administrator, Nikki Baer, has over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. We enjoy getting to know our clients on a personal level. Our team is dedicated to providing you the highest level of customer service possible. Please do not hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns you may have.
