At Edward Jones, we focus on serving the financial needs of individual investors of all ages and financial means. We have built our business by treating our clients as we would want to be treated, a simple idea that still makes sense in today's complex marketplace.

I attended the University of Illinois and graduated magna cum laude in 2002 with a bachelor's degree in finance.

Prior to joining Edward Jones, I spent 11 years performing financial and logistical support work for a nonprofit organization in central Europe, living in both Budapest, Hungary, and Prague, Czech Republic. I came to Edward Jones in August 2016 because I wanted to help individual investors work toward achieving their financial goals.

My interest in investing started in sixth grade math (in 1991) when we played the "Stock Market Game," investing imaginary funds in stocks we picked from the newspaper. I received my first share of stock that year for Christmas. Investing has been a passion of mine ever since.

I am an active member of the community, serving as an ambassador and director for the Gladstone Area Chamber of Commerce in Missouri. However, my most gratifying (and sometimes challenging) role is that of father. My wife, Andrea, and I have two children, Bethany and Ethan, who enjoy keeping me on my toes.

Vanessa Pierson joined the branch office in September 2018. She helps keep office operations running smoothly and loves visiting with our wonderful clients.

At Edward Jones, we're focused on you. I would like to help to provide the answers to your questions so you can make informed, financially sound decisions. Please contact me to discuss your situation and options.
