I have the greatest job in the world: I help people retire! As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I am passionate about building lifelong relationships with my clients, helping them to accumulate wealth, live well and leave a legacy. We use an established process, partnering together to create personalized strategies to help achieve what's most important to them.

Prior to Edward Jones, I moved to Virginia in 2007 to serve as a civilian intelligence officer with the Department of Defense. I was proud to serve my country, but more importantly, I learned how to work with people of all backgrounds toward a common goal. Today, I bring the same attention to detail and flexibility to the table building financial wellbeing for each client family.

A member of the Texas A&M University Class of 2004, I hold bachelor's and master's degrees in nuclear engineering. I am a member of the Chamber of Commerce and the Charlottesville Business Exchange and I enjoy supporting community events such as the Walk to End Alzheimer's. My wife, Samantha, is from Florida. She went to Northeastern University and works with a global community of ambitious, supportive women who are changing the culture of business. We have two cats, Starbuck and Lamp, who bring a lot of joy to our lives.

My branch office administrator, Kelly, enjoys working with our clients to help keep them on track. She was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to Virginia in 1993. Kelly has associate's and bachelor's degrees in business administration from Averett University in Danville. Before Edward Jones, Kelly worked 21 years for Verizon Wireless in business operations. She lives in Spotsylvania County with her husband, Al, and their rescue dogs, Teddy, Olive, Jessie and Lucy.

We embrace the opportunity to serve our community by helping you feel understood, informed and in control of your future. We look forward to partnering with you!
