One-size-fits-all may be fine for some investors, but we believe investments should be tailored to your needs and not generically based on guidelines for someone your age or at your stage of life. Whether your goals include preparing for or living in retirement, paying for education, planning for the unexpected or creating an estate or inheritance, we can offer investment solutions tailored to your financial goals.

Originally from Black Mountain, NC, I attended Furman University in South Carolina and graduated in 2001 with a bachelor's degree in chemistry. I continued my education at The University of Georgia, earning a master's degree in chemistry in 2008. Prior to being a financial advisor, I managed a research laboratory for Vitamin Derivatives here in Athens, GA, for over a decade. I began my career as an Edward Jones financial advisor in 2017.

I have been active in a number of business and civic organizations since I moved to Athens in 2003. Currently, I am a member of the Canopy Studio Repertory Company, Oconee Rivers Audubon Society, East Athens Business Leaders Association and the board of directors for The Winterville Marigold Festival.

My delightful wife, Rabun, and I live in Athens with our two daughters, Tyus and Deborah. Rabun is the pharmacist and owner at Hodgson's Pharmacy. We love Athens and are so happy to call it our home!
