When it comes to financial advising, for me, it’s a family affair. My father has been an Edward Jones financial advisor since the early '80s, and when I took a finance class in high school, I realized following in his footsteps would be a no-brainer. In addition to financial know-how, I directly learned from him the importance of building personal relationships with my clients and putting their interests above all else. That’s why my team always strives to go above and beyond when it comes to individual attention and customer service for our clients.
Our office in Arlington Heights serves all kinds of investors, from local small-business owners to retirees to high-net-worth individuals from outside the community. Without guidance, many investors make common mistakes like letting emotion get in the way of logical investments or taking advice from questionable sources. That’s why our team works to build a relationship with each client - to help them feel safe and supported as they ask questions and work toward achieving their goals.
Integral to our team is our branch office administrator, Laura, who works tirelessly to ensure that our clients are taken care of when it comes to the administrative side of things. In addition to keeping things on track, she’s the smiling face clients see when they first walk in our doors.
Outside the office, you can find me spending time with my wife and two daughters. I enjoy spending time with my family, spending as much time outdoors as possible, playing golf and playing in a men's baseball league. I’m also an active member of my community, serving as a past president and current member of the Arlington Heights Kiwanis Club, which does all kinds of good work for the community and folks in need.
Prior to joining the firm, I graduated from Loras College in 2008, where I played on the baseball team for three years. Playing collegiate sports helped develop my people, teamwork and leadership skills both on and off the diamond
