My wife, Jacki, and I reside in Southeast Tennessee along with our three kids, Eric, Jaylan and Julian, and Yorkie-poo, Max. We love to travel, hike and tell corny jokes. I attended both Morehouse College and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, graduating in 2000 with my B.A. I joined Edward Jones in 2017 with a more than 20 years' experience in both the corporate and entrepreneurial sectors.

My branch office administrator, Mary, and I share an intense passion for being of service in our community. Whether it be on a board, advisory panel, charitable giving or just swinging a hammer, impacting lives positively is what we live to do. We also like to partner with civic organizations such as the United Way, The Alzheimer's Association, Kiwanis, The YMCA and Boy Scouts of America, to name a few.

What really inspires me about the work that I do is the fact that we partner with people to work toward achieving their dreams and doing what's important to them. We even have an established process for helping them prepare for times that the road may take an unexpected path. Through our profession, we have the privilege of serving the community in real personal ways that can affect generations!

We want to see you prepared. Strategies include:
* Strategies for helping build wealth
* Risk management strategies
* Estate Strategies
* Philanthropy
* Assets put tax deferred or tax-free growth
* Regular cash flow
* Exceptional Income events
* Decisions in transition

We partner with individuals, small businesses, charitable organizations, estates, trusts, attorneys, tax preparers and accountants. We believe that a personalized, client-first strategy that puts the needs, desires and wellbeing of the individual above all is the only way to do business with anyone we work with. Not everyone is going to want to partner with an involved and caring team, and that's okay. But for those that feel that's what they deserve and desire, we look forward to sitting down with you.
