My passion for finance started at a young age. At 12 years old, I took money I'd saved from mowing lawns and asked my parents how I could make it grow. We met with my family's financial advisor, who helped me invest the money I'd saved, and more importantly, inspired me. He opened my eyes to the world of finance, and how the right financial strategies, executed well, can have a meaningful impact on people's lives.

While attending Oregon State University, I worked in my financial advisor's office. After graduating with a dual major in finance and accounting, I moved back to the Portland area to establish my own practice. My Grandfather, who had been a part of Edward Jones, suggested I look into the firm and what it had to offer. After doing some research, I was quickly drawn in by the firm's culture and environment for both the clients and employees. I believe Edward Jones stands out from other financial firms because our focus is always on the individual client.

I've been serving clients with Edward Jones since 2012. My branch office administrator, Tamara Runyan, and I utilize an established process to partner with our clients and their families, helping them clearly define and predictably achieve their financial goals. We strive to create a comfortable environment where our clients feel we fully understand what's important to them and that we will act in their best interest. We take pride in our individually detailed approach to each of our clients.

When I'm not in the office, my world revolves around my family. My wife and I love spending time with our two dogs and enjoy getting together with our family and friends to experience the beautiful Northwest hiking, fishing, camping and rafting.

I look forward to learning about you and your financial goals. It all starts with a conversation, give us a call today or come by the office to get started.
