When I was 12 years old, I bought my first stock with my paper route money and have been passionate about the investment world ever since. After completing my MBA from the University of Arkansas in Little Rock in 1994, I went to work for childhood friends building a Christian summer camp for children near Marble Falls. I met my soon-to-be wife at the camp and realized fairly quickly that I needed a better career before I could get her to say "yes," (for some reason living in a barn with three other guys and ten cats didn't appeal to her).
We moved to the Westlake area in 2001 and I began my career at Edward Jones shortly after. We have been blessed with three amazing children and are humbled by the community we serve.
Rarely does a day go by that I don't give myself a "professional pinch" that I get to serve the clients I work with. I'm not saying there haven't been bumps along the way, but the relationships I have been able to build and the joy I have in continuing to assist them with their financial goals is truly my honor.
