In 1993, I began my Edward Jones career as a branch office administrator in Wallace, NC. The following year, I became a financial advisor and opened an office in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, GA. I continue to serve investors in that community today. Early in my career, I distinguished myself as a leader, serving the firm as a growth leader, hiring team member, mentor, field trainer and visiting veteran to new financial advisors.

In 2002, I was named a regional leader for metropolitan Atlanta and northeast Georgia. In this role, I support and guide more than 50 branch teams and serve as a liaison between them and the firm’s St. Louis headquarters. I was named a principal with the firm in 2006.

I have been invited to attend the firm’s annual Managing Partner’s Conference, an honor reserved for the top 350 of the firm’s more than 15,000 financial advisors, more than a dozen times. In addition, the growth of my business has been so robust that I've invited four other financial advisors to join me in Decatur and its surrounding community to better serve its investors.

Individuals wondering if they have saved enough for retirement, those with complex estate-strategy needs, charitable entities in need of asset allocation or closely held family businesses are some of the typical clients best suited to work with us.

A native of Gainesville, GA, I graduated from Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia with degrees in humanities and Spanish. Prior to joining Edward Jones, I was a high school English teacher and soccer coach at the Brandon Hall School in Dunwoody, GA.

I am married to my wonderful wife, Heather, and we have two children, Nicholas and Olivia. I've been active in our community and have served on the boards of the DeKalb Medical Center Foundation, the DeKalb History Center and Druid Hills Youth Sports. I am active in the Decatur Rotary Club, All Saints' Episcopal Church and the Hampden-Sydney College alumni group here in Atlanta.
