I love to meet and really get to know new people, and I love to teach. I've had these passions all my life: as a college professor and dean, as a military aviator and skydiver, and now as a financial advisor. If you're looking for someone who will really listen to your dreams and goals, help you discover the path to move you forward and make it all understandable, then I would love to meet you.

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 degrees from the USAF Academy, UNC-CH, and U.Va., we can talk about money or flying or books; but mostly, I look forward to hearing about you and your goals. If I can help marines and soldiers understand airlift (I spent two years each as Airlift Liaison to the Marines at Camp Pendleton and the Army at Ft. Bragg, deploying with each HQ to the Gulf and then Afghanistan), then I can help you understand your money. My role 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 with our children and our pets in 2009, and we are deeply committed to the success of this city and its people. Richmond is our home by choice. We live within walking distance of my office, three incredible museums and too many great restaurants to name. 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 (she's an artist and editor). We bike and travel together often, mostly to visit our far-flung and still growing family.

Highly personalized service is the cornerstone of my business and Edward Jones as a firm. We're dedicated to discovering the unique goals and needs of you and your family, and providing a solid, customized path to financial success. And importantly, to making sure you understand it. This is what we do at Edward Jones, and I love doing it.
