I love to teach. I've done it all my life: as a military aviator and skydiver, as a college professor and dean, and now as a financial advisor. If you want not just to get good advice, but also to understand it, I would love to partner with you on your financial journey.

I retired from the Air Force with over 2000 flying hours, most of them as an instructor. Before retiring, I helped lead the USAF Academy's Department of English and Fine Arts. With an MA from UNC-CH and a PhD from U.Va., we can talk about money, we can talk about books, and we can talk about books about money. If I can help marines and soldiers understand airlift (I spent two years each as Airlift Liaison to the Marines at Camp Pendleton and then the Army at Ft. Bragg, deploying with the headquarters of each to the Gulf and then Afghanistan), then I can help you understand the path to your financial goals. My job is to intimately understand what "mission accomplished" means to you, and to bring the extensive resources of Edward Jones to bear in helping you get there.

My wife, Laura, and I came to Richmond in 2009, and we are deeply committed to the success of this city and its people. Richmond is our home by choice. We are involved as consultants and volunteers for local organizations and charities, particularly in the fields of education and social justice. We each love our careers. We bike and travel together often, mostly to visit our far-flung and still growing family.

I especially look forward to the honor of getting to know you and your family, and partnering with you in building a solid, customized path to financial success. And to making sure you understand it. This is what we do at Edward Jones, and I love doing it.
