I recognize that schools today are great at teaching a person a skill to go earn money. They do an amazing job of helping you learn how to go “work for the man,” but there is little to no financial education. Because of this, I strive to not only understand what is important to you, but also to educate you along the way – helping you understand the “why.” When I was 8 years old, my mom told me: “It’s not what you make, it’s what you keep.” At that time in my life, I thought we were poor because I had to wear my basketball shoes with holes in the soles. But, looking back now, I can see that we were simply middle class.

Fast forward 20 years, as I was tracking through the military, I encountered many people who had a good income, yet worried about a relatively small pay cut when moving back from overseas. Then I remembered what my mom always told me: "It's not what you make, it's what you keep." This perspective helped me understand the need for financial education and clarified my purpose. In 2011, after serving 24 years in the US Navy as a Naval Aviator, I retired and began my second career at Edward Jones. I earned my degree in biomedical engineering from Tulane University and then furthered my education by studying at UCLA and earning my CFP® designation in 2016.

My wife, Christie, grew up in Pampa and is the reason we moved there with our two daughters in 2011. We now have four children in total, two girls in college and two preschool kiddos, and we moved to Amarillo in September 2021 with the business still located in Pampa. Our branch team consists of two branch office administrators, Melissa and Brenda. Together, we are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible, focused on actively listening and providing customized solutions to your complex financial needs.
