I have been with Edward Jones since 2001. I retired that same year with the rank of senior chief petty officer, after having served over eight years in the United States Marine Corps and over 16 years in the United States Navy. I served nine years overseas in Spain, Panama and various other locations.

I hold numerous educational and professional certifications, including:
- CFP® certification. To gain the CFP® certification, a financial advisor must pass the CFP® Certification Examination and the CFP Board’s Fitness Standards for Candidates and Registrants, agree to abide by the CFP Board’s Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility and comply with the Financial Planning Practice Standards.
– Accredited Asset Management Specialist™ certification. The College for Financial Planning awards the AAMS™ designation to individuals who successfully complete a 12-module professional education program, pass a final examination, commit to its code of ethics and agree to pursue continuing education.
– Series 7, 63 and 65 securities registrations
– Life insurance license.
– Bachelor's degree from Wayland Baptist University.
– National Security Agency professionalization as both a language analyst (translator) and voice language analyst (transcriber) in French, as well as proficiency in Spanish and Haitian-Creole

I reside in La Grande with my wife, Diane. I am active in the community with the Grande Ronde Radio Amateur Association and my church. I have served in various capacities in the Union County Chamber of Commerce and Joseph Chamber of Commerce, as well as with a local nonprofit organization and a local business networking group.
