I moved to Bradenton, Florida in 1988 with my family so that my dad could start a new job with Edward D. Jones and Company. After a few years, he loved it so much he convinced my mom to become a financial advisor too. After graduating from Wake Forest University as an All-ACC/Academic All-American catcher, I signed a professional baseball contract with the Seattle Mariners. I never made it to the major leagues but learned and developed an incredible amount from my journey. I was able to see much of the United States and had the opportunity to play abroad. I was also able to improve my Spanish so much that many consider me fluent.

After my baseball journey came to an end, I knew that I wanted to follow in my parents' footsteps and work for Edward Jones. When I started in 2011, I had a chance to learn from my parents who had more than 45 years' experience between the two of them. The biggest takeaway that I had was to treat each client with integrity and respect, always do what is in your client's best interest and you will be successful together. This is something that I pride myself in and I will pass on to each client of mine.

Education has always been important to me and I feel that self-improvement is critical. To achieve this, I have earned two additional designations, AAMS® and CFP®.

Outside of the office, I pursue many volunteer activities to help out in our community, including:
-Bradenton Kiwanis (Board of Directors)
-Art Center Manatee (Board of Directors)
-Manatee Chamber of Commerce
-Bradenton Country Club (Board of Directors)

I currently live in Palmetto with my wife, Sarah, and two sons, John and Wesley. Sarah and I have been married since 2010. Outside of the office, I enjoy traveling with my family, golf, fishing and cycling.
