Given 30 days to live as a premature baby and experiencing a competitive baseball career-ending ACL injury in high school, life taught me the principles of desire, dedication and discipline early.
While at the University of Tennessee, I became a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., worked as a Community Relations Associate for the National Champion football team and graduated with a mechanical engineering degree.
After a 13-year food & beverage manufacturing manager career, I became a trusted financial advisor in 2016. My career journey helped me learn the importance of living on purpose and in your purpose.
A near fatal heart attack in 2017 at age 38 reinforced the importance of sound financial strategies and being prepared for the unexpected. It changed how I view what is important in my life and the lives of those who partner with me.
I use plain talk to help you create the financial strategy you need to help you achieve what you desire most.

My wife, Tanya, and I have one daughter, Sydney, who works for ALSAC/St. Jude. I serve on the boards for the Mid-South American Heart Association, Explore Bike Share Memphis and Pathways 2 Excellence.
I love brain games and puzzles, am a self-proclaimed foodie and live by my 'Dream In 3D' philosophy – desire, dedication and discipline in everything I do.
