I grew up on a ranch in the Texas Hill County. Most of what I learned came from helping my family raise cattle, sheep and goats. Our lives were rooted in hard work, providing for the family and being good stewards of the land and livestock.

Early on, I learned the importance of saving and diversification from living on the ranch. Dad always kept two years of hay in the barn which taught me about saving for the unexpected. He also diversified by having different streams of income: raising cattle, sheep and goats, hunting and running a welding shop.

As a financial advisor, I apply those lessons learned to my business. I believe that it’s important to understand clients’ goals before offering advice. In order to help you achieve financial success, I am dedicated to listening, caring and helping you determine the appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I will work closely with you, your CPA and other professionals to help you achieve your goals.

I started my career with Edward Jones in 2002. After over 20 years working for a utility company, a corporate takeover eliminated my position. To keep my family in Texas, I decided to take the severance. My financial advisor and I developed a strategy to get through the unemployment, join the Edward Jones team and provide for my family. It was the best decision that I ever made!

My wife, Terra, and I have been married for 40 years. We live on a ranch in Coleman and raise Angus Cattle. We love to spend time with our grandkids. Terra and I enjoy world traveling and taking our horses out to explore the great outdoors.

My team includes Shawna Hammons, a branch office administrator who has 20 years of administrative experience. Together we are inspired to earn your trust while exceeding your expectations for service.

I look forward to meeting you sometime. I would enjoy taking the time to understand your situation by working through our established process in order to tailor strategies to your particular goals.
