As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I have the privilege of serving my clients as they work toward their goals while pursuing what matters most to them. When I know this, I believe I can truly help my clients with an ideal experience. It is my desire to partner together with each client, helping to make sure that they stay on track for the rest of their life. I am committed to evaluating their comfort with risk and finding the matching appropriate investments. I value each client we serve and the time we spend together to help build, protect and transfer wealth. In our office, we have a proven process to help ensure that each client has a comprehensive investment and retirement savings strategy, which provides more options in living and retirement.

In 1996, I earned my bachelor's degree from Cedarville University in Ohio. I obtained my master's degree in administration from the University of Illinois in Springfield. As a former educator, I place a high value on helping my clients understand what they own and explaining how each investment works.

I consider it a privilege to have my office located in my hometown, Rochester, IL. My wife, Emily, and I both graduated from Rochester High School. I also taught in the community for 17 years. I have three children, Elodie, Kade and Porter. As a family we enjoy camping, biking and outdoor adventures.

I am active in the community through sports, kids clubs and volunteer opportunities. I place a high value on giving back and service. I also serve as an elder in my church.

My branch office administrator, Nikki Virgin, has partnered with me in our office since 2016. We are both dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any needs you have.

We look forward to the opportunity to work with you and help you reach your goals.
