I began my career at Edward Jones in 2002. I became the third financial advisor in Scioto County. Today, we have six.

We are inspired by taking time to truly understand what is important to our clients. We use an established process to help achieve financial goals, and we enjoy partnering with our clients by meeting regularly and making sure we are on track. We also use a team approach. In addition to working with your legal and tax professionals, the Edward Jones home office and my Senior Branch Administrator, Dawn Joyce, all work with me on behalf of our clients. Dawn and I have worked together for 19 years.

I have volunteered at Edward Jones in many capacities; I am currently providing support and training for our region's branch teams across four states.

I attended Marshall University in Huntington, WV where I received both a bachelors and master's degree. I also attended Ohio University in Athens, OH earning an M.B.A. My wife, Melissa, and I have been married since 1994. Melisa also attended Marshall University, where we met, and currently works as a speech/language pathologist at Portsmouth City Schools. We have two amazing sons, Trent and Luke. We love to spend time as a family traveling and getting outdoors to bike and hike.
