I grew up in the small town of Corning and fell in love with the northern California community. Upon graduating from Corning Union High School, I had to wait to continue my higher education due to economic factors. Instead, I joined the workforce and began working for Safeway, Inc. During my 16 years with the company, I held many positions including assistant manager but my favorite position was working in the produce department. I also enjoyed representing the union, UFCW8, as the shop steward.
In 2007, I decided to move to Chico and while continuing with Safeway, I enrolled at Butte College and eventually transferred to California State University, Chico(CSUC). I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration with a focus in finance on December 21, 2012.
With my degree in hand, I was accepted into the Edward Jones training program. Pursuing my passion in finance, I met my goals and was able to open my own Edward Jones branch in 2019.
In my free time, I enjoy staying current on economic news and enjoy reading The Wall Street Journal and The Economist, as well as rising early to follow the financial markets. I enjoy the time I get to spend with my family, the arts and going fishing.
I live in Chico with my lovely wife, Kimberly, and our two beautiful children, Eliana and Elijah.
