Since 1982, my goal as a financial advisor has always been to provide personalized investment strategies designed to help my clients' meet their goals. Working closely with you, your CPA, your attorney and other professionals, we can determine the most appropriate financial strategy for retirement planning, saving for education, insurance strategies or creating a regular flow of income.

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.A. in economics in 1981. After graduation, I began my career with Edward Jones in Vincennes, Indiana.

My wife, Jennifer, and I reside in Vincennes and have three children: Jack, Ali and Susan. I believe in giving back to the community and serve on a variety of community boards. Currently, I am in my 31st year of serving on the Indiana Military Museum Board and 26th year and current president of the Vincennes/Knox County Visitors and Tourism Board. I was appointed by the past three governors to serve on the INvestED student loan and literacy organization board and have served our state for the past 13 years. I have also served as president of the Vincennes School Building Corporation for the past 15 years.

My passion is helping children and in 1998, my wife and I started the Skinner Fund, providing birthday gifts and parties to underprivileged children each year in Knox County. In 2007, my wife and I established a USS Swim Team in Vincennes.

During my Edward Jones career, I served as regional leader for 13 years. I have attended 29 Managing Partners Conferences, an honor reserved for the top 400 of the firm's financial advisors.

My branch office administrators, Michelle Fossmeyer and Leslie Funk, have over 20 years of combined experience. Our branch team is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible and will partner together with you to keep you on track to reach your financial goals.
