As someone who grew up in a family owned business, I learned early on in life about finances... discussing profits, expenses, budgets and savings. I spent many days after school at our used car dealership in West Frankfort, IL. There were many lessons about working and running a business, but also one valuable lesson about how to treat people. Everyone that comes through our doors should be treated like family.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I get to work with my clients on helping them achieve their goals and dreams. Everyone's situation is unique, and taking the time to get to know you personally enables us to create financial strategies that are specific to your goals. I want each client to feel like a part of our Edward Jones family.

My love for investing and finance came from my roots in entrepreneurship and also from my own experiences on how a good financial strategy can impact, not only your only life, but also the generations that will follow. A few small changes today can make a huge difference later on. I am also a proud graduate of Southern Illinois University with a degree in management / finance.

On a personal note, my wife and I live in Carterville, IL. We like to take family vacations every year to the Destin, FL area. A little known fact about myself is that I used to race ATV Motocross throughout the country. My family and I traveled to 22 different states while racing and had the opportunity to race inside the Daytona International Speedway twice. I volunteer on the Carterville Chamber of Commerce board and I also enjoy golfing, being outdoors with my family and drumming.

I would love the opportunity to work together with you and help you as we work towards the things that matter most.
