Twenty seven years ago I found myself laid-off and looking for a new career. After a conversation with my friend and financial advisor, I knew I had found an opportunity with Edward Jones that became my calling.

My experiences growing up in Glen Ellyn provided an ideal foundation to be a financial advisor.

As a Boy Scout, I was mentored to always be learning and developing new skills; to "Be Prepared", to set and achieve goals and the importance of serving others.

Being raised in the church centered me with faith, hope and gratitude.

During my college years at the University of Illinois, I was taught to listen intently and understand what is important before looking for solutions.

These simple yet effective skills have become cornerstones in our business everyday as we create relationships that are the centerpiece of our working together.

Our ideal clients are those who want to thoughtfully work towards their family's financial goals that range from retirement, to estate and charitable considerations, to sending a child or grandchild to college. No two scenarios are the same, and neither are the strategies we apply to help achieve those financial goals.

I'm inspired everyday by the people I'm so lucky to work with and serve. My branch office administrators, Amy and Martha, strive each day to provide an ideal client experience. We are so fortunate to be able to serve Glen Ellyn and the surrounding communities.

My wife and I enjoy many activities together, from golfing and fishing, to travel, camping, hiking, biking and Bluegrass Festivals. I also find relaxation playing guitar - either around a campfire or at church. We have five adult daughters and are blessed with four grandchildren.

We want to understand what is important to you and help you with our established process of building personalized strategies; then partner with you throughout your life to keep your journey on track.

It all begins with a conversation - let's get started.
