My grandmother started me down the path of investing as a child when she gifted me savings bonds. By the time I had my first job as a schoolteacher and athletic coach, I was keenly aware of my retirement planning.

I enjoy being able to teach and coach others, and I love being able to impact their lives in important ways. Being an Edward Jones financial advisor allows me to use my coaching skills to guide clients through their financial lives. I enjoy getting to know my clients as people, and I find it very fulfilling when they seem more like family friends than business associates.

When making the change from schoolteacher to financial advisor, I did a lot of research meeting and interviewing at various financial firms. As I learned about Edward Jones' history, ethics and business structure, I knew it was the place for me. With no stockholders telling us what and how much to sell, our clients' needs come first in all matters. I believe this sets us apart in the industry as we work hard to serve individuals and their financial needs and goals.

I have been married to my beautiful wife for over 20 years. We began dating while growing up in our small Wyoming town of 2,000 people and have been together ever since. We have three teenage daughters and a mini schnauzer named Oliver; we call him Olli. In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, woodworking and exploring the outdoors.

My Branch Office Administrator, Jennifer, started working in my branch in 2021 after a career as a health care coordinator in various capacities. She returned to Arizona in 2017, having lived all over the Western and Midwest United States. Jennifer is happily married with two adult children and twin teenagers as well as three grandchildren. She enjoys hiking, camping, traveling and reading when she's not in the office assisting our clients.
