I joined Edward Jones in the middle of 2009 because I knew that there were people in my community that needed help making sense of their investments. Prior to joining Edward Jones, I spent several years in the gaming and hospitality industry, which I think has prepared me to provide exceptional service to our branch clients.

After serving as a financial advisor in Edwardsville, I was asked to join our home office team and served in our compliance division for about seven years. I returned to my role as financial advisor in 2019 when presented an opportunity to work with clients near my adopted hometown. I am passionate about working with clients through difficult situations, including seeing your children off to school, changes in jobs or loss of a loved one. Simply put, what's important to me, is understanding what's important to you.

Originally from Northern California, I moved to the area to attend Southern Illinois University Edwardsville where I graduated with a bachelor's degree in English. While attending SIUe, I met my wife, Lisa, a Southern Illinois native.

We now have three children, Evan, Anna Marie and Lucas. When I'm not at the office or meeting with clients, you can find me at any one of their various sports or activities. Lisa and I share a passion for travel, and we truly enjoy sharing that passion with our children.

I returned to SIUe and in 2018, earned my Master of Business Administration where I specialized in business analytics. The coursework in that program prepared me for the responsibility of operating a business in my community through collaboration with others and creating value for our clients.

Our branch team wouldn't be complete without John Kemp, our branch office administrator. John brings over 12 years' experience with Edward Jones and is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service available.
