While growing up in Texas, I often heard my father refer to his stock broker. I didn't know what that was exactly, but I knew it was a good thing as it seemed to have a lot to do with how my dad supported us. I came to understand that the bulk of my parents' net worth had to do with investments. My father had been consistent in buying his company stock over the years, as well buying other stocks. He didn't have a pension when he retired, or a 401k, but he had built a nest egg through saving and smart investing.
I went on to school and earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Southern Utah University and a master's degree in recreational therapy from Indiana University. I wanted to help families and I wanted to make a difference.
I met my wife, Nicole, while working on my undergraduate degree. We were married in 1995. After schooling and working as a therapist for a while, I became acquainted with an Edward Jones financial advisor. The first time he talked to me about what he did and the company he worked for, I thought, “Wow, I need to do that and I need to work for them.” I started with Edward Jones on September 3, 2001. As it turns out, this is exactly where I am supposed to be.
Nicole and I have four children Chase (20), John (deceased), Katri (16), and Olivia (12). We enjoy traveling, camping, hiking and overlanding.

I am grateful for the lessons I learned from my parents. I am thrilled to work for Edward Jones. I am blessed to have a career where I can help families and make a difference.
