Experience and Background

I bring a unique perspective to my role as a financial advisor. Prior to joining Edward Jones, I spent over 20 years working different roles in banking as well as the insurance industry. This experience has helped me prepare my clients for the unexpected as well as assisting them to realize their dreams. Along the way, I have built a reputation that is true to my values which are hard work, honesty, empathy and respect for others.

How We Partner Together

I take a personalized approach of getting to know my clients before providing recommendations. I do this by listening to their personal story and what they want to achieve. It is important to focus on what is important to them.

I work with my clients to help them create a detailed strategy that is customized for their long-term financial goals. We review these goals on a regular basis to ensure that each client feels understood and secure with all aspects of their finances.

About Me

In my local community of Carmi, I am currently the president of our local school board. I am a past president of the Carmi Chamber of Commerce.

I graduated from the University of Illinois in 1994, with a bachelor's degree in finance. I started my branch office with Edward Jones in Carmi, IL in 2016.

My wife, Jennifer, and I live in Carmi along with our three children: Cooper, Callie and Quincy.
