In 2007, I began my career as a financial advisor in Murphy, NC. I am happy to say that my business is much more than a job – it's an opportunity to fulfill my passion of improving the lives of families and businesses in our community.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I strive to understand what is important to you, use our established processes and partner with you to help keep you on track to reach your financial goals. I value personal relationships based on a deep understanding of your unique financial needs.

I earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Georgia in 1989. Since joining Edward Jones, I have earned the AAMS™ professional designation from the College for Financial Planning. It is awarded after completing a professional education program, passing the final examination, committing to its code of ethics and agreeing to pursue continuing education.

My wife, Edie, and I moved to Murphy in 2000. We have two children, Josie and Noah. As a family, we enjoy the outdoors, travel and spending time together.

Volunteerism has been an important part of my life. In the early 1990s, I served for two years in the Peace Corps in Honduras. I also proudly served six years in our military. Part of that time, I was deployed to Baghdad, Iraq while serving with the North Carolina National Guard. I currently enjoy supporting my local community by serving as a volunteer firefighter. I have been a member of the Murphy Fire Department since 2003. I'm also involved at our church and have served as a deacon. Each holiday season, our office supports the Toys for Tots campaign by encouraging our clients to drop off toys at our office.

My senior branch office administrator, Richard Furlough, joined Edward Jones in 2010. He is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service.

Give us a call or stop by our branch – we look forward to seeing you.
