I completed a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology with a minor in music from Northern Arizona University. After a short stint as a youth counselor and touring the country as a professional musician, I joined America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses and enjoyed a 15-year career as a division manager and vice president of retail operations. I was fortunate to travel the country to open and manage the operations of 25 very successful optometric retail stores throughout the Midwest. I relocated from Arizona to Missouri to Illinois, and finally to New Jersey, to work in the company's headquarters. These experiences prepared me for a successful career as a financial advisor with Edward Jones.

My wife, Wendy, and I have lived in Blue Springs for over 20 years. We are very active in our church, both serving on the praise and worship team. We are also actively involved in Hope House of Independence.

With two kids in college, we enjoy camping and travel for relaxation. My free time is spent predominately studying the guitar. I currently play praise and worship at church and perform throughout the KC metro in a classic rock variety show and dance band.

Kelle, my business partner, and I take pride in delivering an exceptional client experience. Since 2003, I have committed to partnering with serious individual investors and small business owners to help them prepare for and live in retirement and fulfil their financial goals and dreams. Through education and understanding what is most important to them, we then develop a specific strategy designed to help reach their financial goals, partnering together to be sure we are on track. As an Edward Jones financial advisor, it is my responsibility to present financial solutions that are based on your interests coming first - a responsibility that I do not take lightly.
