I grew up in the country in and around Crawford, Alabama. I graduated from Glenwood High School in 1982 and continued my education at CVCC then on to Mobile College where I earned a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in sociology and religion. From there, I went onto New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where I earned a Master of Religious Education degree. I have served as associate pastor in various churches in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, and returned home in the early '90s where my wife of 34 years and I have raised our family.

I was taught many lessons growing up but there are two things that have made a lasting impression. Hard work has its own rewards and your name means everything. Daddy would always say, "Remember who you are and whose you are." Another saying that has meant so much to me through the years is this, "The easy way is not always the right way."

I have translated that mind set and work ethic into the driving force behind my service to my clients and my community. I am a member of the East Alabama Chamber of Commerce, the East Alabama Board of Realtors, the Russell Baptist Association and the Chattahoochee Valley Business Networking chapter of BNI. I have been blessed, so I try to be a blessing to others.

As a financial advisor, my commitment is to a partnership with my clients. We work together to dream about their future: Where am I today? Where would I like to be? How do I get there? Can I get there? How do I stay there? I want to challenge my clients to dream about the "what then" of life. By understanding my clients, I can anticipate needs and talk sincerely about difficult topics that are important to them and their long-term goals.

I want to give everyone I meet an opportunity to say that they are better off having met me.
