There is nothing more satisfying than to help someone.
I have the heart of a teacher and am focused on service.
I love to turn someone's financial path to the other fork in the road, the "less traveled" road using a long-term client-centric relationship approach.

I follow an established process from Edward Jones to help reach client goals for retirement income, growth, protection and estate considerations while working with their team of CPAs and attorneys.

My partner is Rod Benmuvhar, a senior branch office administrator.
We share the same goal of high-quality processing with minimal errors.
An extension to our team is the thousands of professionals at the home offices of Edward Jones in St. Louis, MO and Tempe, AZ.

My financial career started in 1993 when working at a company in Kansas City, MO within the transfer agency for several mutual funds. I then moved on to Edward Jones and have proudly supported my clients in Gladstone since April 2008.

My father worked for the US Air Force and as a child, I lived all over the world, from Wiesbaden, Germany to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. My schoolmates and neighbors were well representative of the melting pot called the USA.

In 1976, I learned that our final move would be to Kansas City and felt the pain of the losses to the Yankees over the next three playoff years.
We celebrated the championships in 1985 and 2015.

I married my 9th grade sweetheart, Stephanie, in July 1987.
We were so blessed to add our daughter, Savannah, to our lives.

My wife and I traveled to Miami and to watch the Chiefs beat the 49s for their first NFL Championship in 50 years. Such great memories, great players and plays like WASP!

We enjoy the Lake of the Ozarks with friends and family. Taking a pontoon ride and stopping for lunch or dinner and some Karaoke is great fun. Yes, I can sing, and was a member of the Country Junction Show at Worlds of Fun in 1985.

Let's have lunch and talk about your goals.
