I became a financial advisor to help people. I longed for a career that would give me a purpose and I truly believe it is my calling to do what I do.

I joined Edward Jones in 2017 but had a love of investing my entire life. Growing up on a small farm, I learned at an early age having a strategy, protecting that strategy, and hard work produced nice returns.

With two decades of experience in finance, insurance and business management, I effectively provide our clients with a financial assessment and a detailed strategy.

These assessments and strategies include risk management, capital gains tax calculations, annuities, insurance, and investment account choices, such as Traditional IRA s, Roth IRA s, Inherited IRA s, SEP IRAs, SIMPLE IRAs, Owner Only 401(k)s, 401(k)s, Safe Harbor 401(k)s, 403(b)s, Profit Sharing, 457(b)s, Defined Benefit plans, Trust, 529s, Custodial, Guardian and Business accounts.

Clients prefer our personal, one-on-one meetings, where we get to know you, understand your goals and develop individual strategies to help reach them. We focus on helping serious, long-term individual investors, including some with complex financial needs. Our clients range from individuals, professionals and business owners to retirees and organizations.

Common mistakes I see investors make is not making the time to put together a strategic financial strategy or routinely review and adjust that strategy. Another mistake is assuming we are only available to high-net-worth clients or that we are too expensive.

We serve clients throughout Arkansas, including Hot Springs, Hot Springs Village, Jessieville, Pearcy, Lonsdale, Royal, Mountain Pine and other towns in Garland, Montgomery, Saline and Hot Spring counties. I also serve clients in many states, including Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.

I am fortunate to work alongside our Senior Branch Office Administrator, JoAnne Trinkle. She has been with Edward Jones since 2010. As a team, our focus is understanding our clients' goals, needs and expectations. That means working closely with your tax advisors, legal counsel or family.

My wife, Jennifer, and I have three children, Ethan, Ady and most recently, Conner. They help us love our fur children, Izzy the dog and Stormy the cat. We enjoy being involved with City Life Church, outdoor activities and pickleball.
