As an Edward Jones advisor, I enjoy developing long-term relationships with my clients by assisting them in building wealth, living generously and leaving a legacy. I accomplish this by first understanding their goals and priorities. After that, I utilize an established and proven process tailored to each client. Because life comes at you fast, we meet on a regular basis to ensure goals are met, no matter what happens.

Prior to Edward Jones, I enjoyed a diverse career in information technology, focused on the financial services sector. I achieved a BS and an MBA from Wright State University. I also received a master's from George Washington University.

I live in Waynesville and have been married over 25 years to my wife, Yasuyo. She works for Advics in Lebanon. Together, we have raised three beautiful children. I enjoy giving back to the community as a member of the local Rotary and the Chamber of Commerce (Springboro and Waynesville), and we have been longtime members of Southbrook Christian Church in Miamisburg.

My branch office administrator, Michele Houghton, has worked in the insurance and financial services industry for over 25 years. Her passion is in providing excellent customer service while personally getting to know each and every client. In her spare time, she keeps busy raising three teenagers, coaching girls high school tennis, volunteering at both Christmas in Springboro and the Coffman YMCA, and attending Southbrook Christian church. She also loves to hike, run, cook and spend time with friends.

13.1 Final thought – I am an avid runner and especially enjoy half marathons, triathlons and many other running events. You don't just wake up and run a half marathon. Just as it is in managing your money, it takes planning, training and dedication. You must set your pace and stick to your long-term goals if you wish to achieve great things. I am here as your coach, your mentor and friend to help you achieve your goals.
