I became an Edward Jones client when I was 18 years old and experienced early on the principles of investing in high-quality, diversified and long-term investments. I caught the bug to serve as a financial advisor out of college but chose another career path instead. Now I serve to educate families, individuals and business owners how to build and preserve wealth.
Prior to joining the firm in 2018, I worked for an eCommerce firm and a stainless-steel manufacturer with roles in marketing, analytics, business development, communications, capacity planning and purchasing. This experience served me well in preparation for my final career.
As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I am committed to providing you with knowledge and education. Whatever is most important to you is what is most important to me. I have a process to prepare a personalized strategy to help you achieve what’s most important to you. I also partner with you for your lifetime to help you stay on track and make corrections when necessary or when the unexpected happens. I'm also passionate about supporting local business owners. I will help you create and maintain a high-quality retirement plan by providing a superior level of plan service for you and ongoing educational support for your participants.
I was born in Dallas, Texas and grew up in the metroplex and Abilene. I graduated from Abilene Christian University in 2007 and met my wife, Kim, during college. She serves as the director at Victory Health Partners. We have three children: June, Rhodes and Luke. When I am not working, I'm with family.
As an Eagle Scout, I serve on a committee for the local Boy Scouts of America. My family and I are active in our church, Christ Redeemer.
Please contact me to discuss your situation. My branch office administrator, Gigi Gilliam, and I look forward to providing you personalized service that helps you meet your specific goals and needs. We look forward to speaking with you.
