Since joining Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 2009, I have learned that nothing is more important to me than understanding what's most important to my clients. I am inspired by getting to know my clients, their goals and their dreams.

Whether it's saving for retirement, a child's education or protecting loved ones from the unexpected - I help my clients by using an established process to determine what is important to them, tailoring a strategy specific to their goals and partnering with them throughout their life to help keep them on track.

Along with my Branch Office Administrator, Kelly Swanby, we strive to provide personal service and ensure each client feels welcomed and valued. But we're not alone – at Edward Jones, thousands of people and advanced technology support our office so our clients receive the most current and comprehensive guidance.

A 1994 graduate of Boise State University, I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in mass communication and journalism. Prior to joining Edward Jones, I worked 11 years at Boise's NBC-TV affiliate, Idaho's News Channel 7. As sports director, I had the privilege of covering many of Idaho's biggest sports and news stories, including the 2007 Boise State Fiesta Bowl triumph.

Active in the community, I lead Edward Jones' local holiday fundraising efforts and served three years as chairperson of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway, benefitting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

I grew up in the small town of Hagerman, ID, working on the family dairy farm. Fluent in Portuguese and Spanish, I was born in Portuguese West Africa in the country of Angola. My family immigrated to California in 1975 and then moved to Idaho in 1983.

I enjoy golf, travel, outdoor activities and spending time with my beautiful wife and best friend, Anna Grace. In addition to my personal pursuits, I am thankful for the opportunity to help my clients achieve their financial goals through personal and rewarding relationships.
