As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest my time to understand what you're working toward before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I can also help with your retirement savings strategy, so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.

It has always been my policy to be completely honest with my clients and to be open to any questions. Service and loyalty to my clients are top priorities. My personal cell phone number is on my business card for a reason; I care about my clients as if they were family and I am not afraid to take a call, whether it is for business or a friendly conversation.

I became an Edward Jones financial advisor in 2002. Prior to 2002, I served in the U.S. Navy for eight years in the Nuclear Field Submarine Service and served as an instructor. During my time in the Navy, I also obtained my BS degree. After serving my country, I then worked in the nuclear power industry for the University of Missouri-Columbia and the Department of Energy in Oak Ridge, TN, for nine years. During this time I developed an interest in stocks and investing. I started two investment clubs and was a founding director of the Knoxville Regional Chapter of the National Association of Investment Clubs (now known as Better Investing). I then turned this hobby of investing into my career by joining Edward Jones in 2002.

My wife, Cathy (also with Edward Jones), and I have two children, Ashley and Jace, and six grandchildren: Brianna, Brooke, JC, Isaac, Lydia and Olivia. I am a fourth-generation Kansan and grew up in Manhattan. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, aviation, antiques and sports activities with my son.
