As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I can also help with your retirement savings strategy, so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.
I began my Edward Jones career in 2002 as a financial advisor in Lockport, IL, moving my office to Joliet, IL, in 2009. I became a limited partner with Edward Jones in 2010.
In 1987, I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from DePauw University in Greencastle, IN. Subsequently, I received the AAMS® designation in 2007 and the CFP® certification in 2015.
My wife, Jane, and I have two boys, Gibson and Creighton, along with our dogs, Baxter and Oliver. I have been active in business and civic affairs in Will County for many years. Giving back to the community is personally important to me. At present, I am an executive board member with Joliet Catholic Academy and Lightways Hospice, and am past president of the Joliet Kiwanis Club.
