I joined Edward Jones in 2006 as a financial advisor in Lisle, Ill. Since then, I have strived to understand what's important to my clients and help them achieve those goals through careful risk management. My branch team will help you understand what your "why" is and be with you every step of the way.
My goal is to help you feel informed about the options available and the recommendations I make, in control of your financial situation and secure in your future.
Always wanting to develop the next generation of financial advisors, I have volunteered at Edward Jones in numerous coaching roles for the western suburbs of Chicago. In 2012, I was chosen by my fellow financial advisors to receive the Ted Jones Spirit of Caring award.
Outside of work, I am involved in my community, devoting time to Boy Scouts of America, my church and my neighborhood. I serve as the committee chair for Scouting BSA Troop 505 and Troop 1505, and am an Eagle Scout and Silver Beaver recipient. I volunteer with Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans by coordinating delivery of beds to veterans as they transition from the shelter to their own home. I have served on the board of my community pool and love to play softball on the neighborhood team.
I graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, with a Bachelor of Science in finance.
I live in Naperville with my wife, Beth; daughter, Rachel; son, Joshua; and two dogs, Cleo and Barley.
