I was born and raised in Waxahachie, Texas – the son of a teacher and small business owner. My parents raised me to always do right by people and taught me that the value of a person lied solely in their integrity. I went to Texas A&M with the intention of becoming an AG teacher. I was drawn to teaching because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others – as many teachers do.

I like to say that I came to be a financial advisor by accident. Edward Jones presented me with an opportunity, and, at the time, I felt I was unqualified. My background was in agriculture education, not in finance. I was told then, which I now know to be true: Edward Jones hires based on values and character. We can teach people finance; we can't teach them to be good people.

I have always taken that with me. I view my role as a financial advisor to be that of a teacher. Whether you are brand new to investing or a seasoned veteran, my goal remains the same: to educate you.

I attended Texas A&M University where I received a bachelor's degree in agriculture education as well as a Master of Education degree in agriculture leadership, education and communications. In 2017, I earned the AAMS™ designation from the College for Financial Planning®.

I married my high school sweetheart, Emilie, in 2015. Emilie also graduated from Texas A&M and is a special education teacher for Waxahachie ISD. We enjoy Aggie football, antiquing and travelling together.

In my free time, I will either be at a college football game, sitting in a deer stand, working on a jeep or hiking a National Park. I am an avid outdoorsman and hunter.

My Branch Office Administrator, Daphne Hawkins, began working for Edward Jones in 2019. She has a great deal of experience in business management. She is here to help with any administrative assistance you may need.

We help families organize, manage and transfer wealth by making sense of investing.
