As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I enjoy partnering with my clients to help them build their wealth and live an abundant life. We accomplish this by using an established process to build a personalized strategy to help you achieve what is most important to you.

Before coming to Edward Jones, I served for 30 years as an officer in the US Army. During my time in the Army, I was blessed to have had the opportunity to serve our country while developing leadership and planning skills that I now use to serve my clients.

I am a 1988 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, holding a bachelor's degree in international affairs, and am also a graduate of the Army War College with a master's degree in strategic studies. My last job in the Army was teaching leadership at the Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base. I grew up in Huntsville, graduating from Grissom High School in 1984 where I played baseball. My wife, Ellen, is also from Huntsville and a fellow 1984 graduate of Grissom, where she now teaches math.

My branch office administrator, Melissa, is excited to be a part of our team, knowing that she is making a difference in the lives of our clients. She moved to Huntsville in 1991 from Corinth, MS. She previously worked in engineering and has been married to Cecil for 33 years.

Ellen and I are both excited to be back in Huntsville to serve in the community we called home throughout our 30 years and 15 moves in the Army. I also look forward to serving the needs of veterans and military retirees, whether locally in Huntsville or elsewhere in the country. I look forward to partnering with you throughout your life to support the needs of you and your family.
