When I was 16, I started traveling the country chasing my dream of being a professional motocross racer. After I graduated from Ruskin High School, racing dirt bikes became my full-time job. I was able to save some of my winnings and started investing in mutual funds when I was 18. For the next eight years, I was able to earn a living and create memories that will last a lifetime. The mental and physical toll that motocross took on my body became too much, and I decided to quit in 2006. Every decision over that time was a cost/benefit analysis on where we would go and race. Budgeting, saving and maximizing my earning potential through the risk and rewards of this profession was part of my daily routine. I think these experiences have shaped who I am today as an Edward Jones financial advisor.

For the next 10 years, I spent my career originating and servicing personal loans and mortgages. In December of 2016, I was ready for a change and I was hired by Edward Jones. In July of 2017, I assumed an office in Grandview, MO and we recently relocated in 2020. I would have never thought I would have the opportunity to serve the community my wife and I grew up in and one where my parents and in-laws still reside.

On a personal note, my wife and I have been married for 15 years and have two boys. We enjoy watching them stay active in sports. I also enjoy teeing it up on a nice day. I am a past president of the Kansas City South Rotary club and an active member in the Grandview and SKC Chamber of Commerce. I have also enjoyed spending time volunteering with Junior Achievement and PrepKC.

My office manager, DeAnna, and I strive each day to provide the most ideal client experience. We focus on learning what is most important to our clients. We want to make sure your investments are getting the attention that they deserve. If you have a question about your rate of return or you are unhappy with your level of personal service, we would love the opportunity to speak with you.
