With more than 40 years of experience, my primary goal is to help individual investors develop an investment strategy geared toward their unique, long-term goals. Whether you need to save for a child's college education, reduce taxes or plan for retirement, I can help.

I have served the Joplin community for many years and I have the honor of working with multiple generations. My team and I help not only second generation clients, but third generation clients as well. We strive to provide comprehensive strategies tailored to individual needs.

I earned my bachelor's degree in business administration from Missouri Southern State University.

In 2020 I was named to Barron's "America's Top 1,200 Financial Advisors." I also have qualified for Edward Jones' Managing Partner's Conference 24 times, which is an honor reserved for the firm's top 400 financial advisors.

My wife, Christy, and I are Joplin natives and we have two sons, Michael and Spencer. We both are active in the community, including serving on the board for the Joplin School District Foundation and the Joplin Family Y. I also spent 20 years on the Missouri Southern Foundation board.

As a client, you benefit from my experience and also from my team. My branch office administrators have more than 17 years experience with Edward Jones and are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service.
