Born and raised in East Tennessee, I am a third-generation community resident of Carter County, Tennessee. Following high school, I made the commitment to serve my country as a United States Marine. I was honored to serve faithfully and be deployed in the Iraq War. I returned to East Tennessee where I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at East Tennessee State University.

I love my work and feel passionate about my clients, the industry and keeping abreast of the daily market as well as the intricacies of long-term investment building. I especially enjoy being able to work individually with people to see their dreams and goals fulfilled, from setting up college funds for new parents, to creating strategies for business owners to save for retirement, to helping retirees start an income stream. I love to see my clients and their families grow, change, and thrive throughout their lives. Partnering closely with my clients is extremely rewarding and valued.

I am actively involved in my community. On any given day, you can find me at Valley Forge Freewill Baptist Church, at a Rotarian meeting, coaching youth Football, volunteering at our local Boys & Girls Club or coaching youth wrestling. My community and those in my community are of high priority to me. My greatest joy outside of work is my family. My wife, Amber, and I were married in 2009 and have resided in Elizabethton, Tennessee since that time. Both of us were born and raised in East Tennessee. In 2014, we welcomed our one and only son, Neyland, who is our greatest joy.

My senior branch office administrator, Patti Whitson, has been with Edward Jones since 2007. She is the heart of our office and can assist you with many of your day-to-day needs.
