About Me

Twenty-five years ago, I became a father for the first time. I was young and just getting my feet on the ground. It didn’t take long to realize that money doesn't grow on trees and that financial security was necessary for both me and my family!

After spending 15 years in a marketing career, I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a financial advisor. I earned my MBA and joined Edward Jones in 2017. I am proud to have them as my partner in helping others reach their financial goals.

About My Branch

We choose to work with our clients in a warm, welcoming and professional manner. My branch office administrator, Kathy Ehlinger, is one of the warmest and most helpful people I have ever met. She is truly an equal partner here at the branch and has been with the company since 2006.

I am educational in nature and communicate with clients in a way that keeps them engaged at their level and on their terms. We tailor the experience for each client and make it easy to understand any confusing aspects of their financial situation.

Community and Family

I'm a proud board member of the YMCA and the Fort Defiance Humane Society, and I am an active member of the Defiance Chamber of Commerce, Lions Club International and the Defiance Area Fish and Game Club.

My wife, Christina, is also from the area and works at a local credit union. My dad and grandpa were both GM workers. My mom has been a local teacher for many years, and her dad operated Stone's Market at the corner of Clinton and Broadway in the 40s and 50s.
