I work with families facing the complexity of wealth to live comfortably and create a meaningful legacy. Along with my office partner, Kelly Geller, senior branch office administrator with over 20 years of experience, we are dedicated to offering clients actionable strategies to help them achieve their financial goals.

I joined Edward Jones in 2002 and am a limited partner at the firm. I take client service very seriously and am passionate about working in my clients' best interests. Prior to Edward Jones, I worked for several years at Payless ShoeSource world headquarters. I earned by B.S. in management and my MBA in business from Emporia State University.

I was raised in Ottawa, Kansas and am a 3rd-generation business owner. My grandparents founded Didde Office Supply in the early 1950s in Ottawa. My father and uncle still run the business today. I started working at the family business after school and learned the values of hard work, dedication and an entrepreneurial spirit at a young age.

Today, I am a proud resident of Topeka where I live with my wife, Jamie, and our children, Molly and Myles. Molly is a sophomore at Washburn Rural High School where she is on the varsity swim team and president of her class. Myles is in the 7th grade at Washburn Rural Middle School. He plays club soccer as a forward. We also have a puppy named Daisy. I enjoy cycling, traveling and spending time with friends and family. I'm an avid runner and have completed 14 marathons and counting. I also enjoy attending sporting events, but these days I am mostly on the sidelines at the soccer fields or watching swim meets from the stands. I also have become a part-time Uber driver due to spending most of my spare time driving to the aforementioned games and swim meets.
