In March 1999, I became an Edward Jones financial advisor to deliver firsthand the quality-oriented, long-term Investment philosophy of Edward Jones; to make a difference and change lives. After eight years in the U.S. Army and multiple deployments to the Middle East, I decided it was time to turn over command of my unit, return home to raise my family and focus on how I could best make a difference in my community.
As an Edward Jones financial advisor, my clients' interests always comes first. I believe it's important to completely understand your situation so we can focus on achieving what's most important to you. Once we've identified your goals, we use an established process to build a personalized financial strategy to help achieve them. With your strategy in place, our branch team partners with you throughout your life to help ensure you stay on track; aiming to provide an ideal client experience.
A native of Atlanta, I grew up between Lithonia and Snellville. After graduating South Gwinnett High School, I spent two years at West Point and obtained my Bachelor of Business Administration degree from North Georgia College in 1991. My wife, Leslie, and I have three grown children (Chris, Breanna and Will) and a beautiful black lab named Grace. When I'm not working, I spend my time reading, golfing and traveling.
I've been involved and held leadership positions in the South Gwinnett Rotary club, Leadership Gwinnett, Gwinnett Parks Foundation, Lilburn Business Association and many others. I continue to volunteer my time with the Leadership Gwinnett Board of Trustees and several other organizations within our community.
If you have questions or would like assistance, please contact me to discuss your personal situation. My branch office administrator, Erin Jameson, and I pride ourselves on providing an ideal client experience personalized to achieve what's most important to you. We look forward to speaking with you.
