I grew up in the Princeton, MO area and while in school, I was active in both 4-H and FFA. Through the projects in those organizations, I learned about responsibility, helping my community and life skills. One of those life skills was taking care of my projects and watching them grow. When I sold my projects, I invested the proceeds in other businesses, including some blue chip dividend-paying companies. This started my journey to becoming interested in helping others understand what investing can do for them.

I attended the University of Missouri after high school where I earned a bachelor's degree. During college, I worked for the USDA in the state office in Columbia and for a short while after graduating. I took the opportunity to return to northwest Missouri to help my mother, a widow, who lived on our farm outside of Princeton and began my career with Edward Jones in 1994. I have been a financial advisor for Edward Jones in Bethany, MO for over 25 years.

I have been asked how I feel about helping people. My answer is I want to help people make their money last; whether it's for travel, their children's education or retirement. Edward Jones is a company I believe in. It is a private company and has a "client first" philosophy to help people make investment decisions for the long term. I believe we are big enough to serve you and small enough to care.

I don't do this alone. Along with a great home office staff, Joanna, Sandy and Joyce make up my team. We are here to help you achieve your financial goals. It all begins with a conversation.

Schedule an appointment so we can discuss your options.

My wife, Shelly, and I have three children: son, Anderson, daughter, Kate, and son, Parker. They are involved in many activities like 4-H and FFA as I was in school. We work together on the family farm and Shelly and I enjoy going to all their activities in which they are involved.
