As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe in the power of investments and what investments can do for a family and community. Our office provides personalized service and makes it a priority to understand the needs of our clients.

In 1994, I earned a bachelor's degree in business administration (finance) from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, TX. Upon graduation, I worked as a teacher and banker before beginning my career with Edward Jones in 2000.

For more than 25 years, I have been married to Shona who works full time as a family nurse practitioner. We have three wonderful children. The girls have been in dance class ever since they could walk, and our son is playing competitive junior golf. I am his caddie. Fun!

Abilene is the perfect community for my wife and I to raise our family.

I have been an active member in the community serving as a Cub Scout den leader (Pack 260, Den 9), president of the Friends of the Abilene Public Library and book sale chairman for the Friends of the Abilene Public Library, and am currently a golf coach for the Wylie Junior High golf class. Fun! Fun! My family and I are active members of First Baptist Church where my wife and I taught 1st grade Sunday school for many years.

My office serves clients all over the country and I am grateful for the personal relationships and friendships that we have been able to create along the way.
