Yankton: the community that raised me, the community I love. Most of my summers were spent nearby on my uncle's farm and I attribute much of my work ethic to the labor and lessons learned there. While I've had the opportunity to spread my wings, live in big cities and travel around the world, my heart has always remained here.

My career with Edward Jones began in early 2011. I obtained my securities and insurance licenses, and soon after started a new Edward Jones office in Frisco, Texas. My wife and I originally chose Frisco because of her family and a desire to build a successful business on my own.

In July 2018, my father, Wayne, who has been serving Edward Jones clients for over 35 years, decided it was time to retire. This provided an opportunity to move back to Yankton and continue an Edward Jones legacy that has been helping clients and businesses organize, build, protect and transfer wealth in the Yankton area since 1972. I am fortunate to partner with Branch Office Administrators Jennifer Slate and Allison Dykstra, who take an active role in caring for our clients. Both call Yankton their hometown and are in tune with the community.

After graduation from Saint John's University in Collegeville, MN, I found myself moving to St. Louis to work for a corporate travel company. I traveled the world, spending nearly each week in a different city, organizing meetings and events for a variety of clients. Then, in 2008, I met my wife, Ashley. We both agreed that the constant life of travel needed to change. My path to Edward Jones began with her. It was Ashley who suggested I apply with Edward Jones.

We now have two beautiful daughters and spend our time sharing as many experiences with them as we can. When not with family or in the office, I enjoy volunteering time and resources to the community as a member of the Yankton Optimists and actively supporting the local Boys & Girls Club, Sacred Heart School, the Humane Society and many others.
