After 23 years of teaching high school business courses, I had no doubt I would retire from a long career at Paola High School. From 2008 to 2018, my wife, BriAnne, and I had been helped by our Edward Jones financial advisor in many areas: preparing for our retirement, investing an inheritance and planning for our son's education. Our lives were on a much better path since beginning our relationship with Edward Jones. At the start of winter break in 2017, my financial advisor called and wanted to have a meeting. He presented the opportunity to come to work for Edward Jones and continue doing what I love: teaching, building relationships and helping people.

As a financial advisor at Edward Jones, my guiding principle is to always act in the best interest of my clients. My established process involves discovering each person's priorities and developing an individualized plan to achieve those goals. Working together with my clients throughout their lives, we establish a strategy that can be adjusted when unexpected events occur.

I grew up in Bonner Springs, KS and graduated from Kansas State University in 1993. I started my teaching career in St. Marys, KS and moved to Council Grove, KS to become the boys basketball coach. While in Council Grove I met my future wife, BriAnne, who accepted a position at the Miami County Republic in Paola. We moved here in 2001 and eventually both of us became teachers at Paola High School. Prior to having our son Rex, we moved to Linn Valley, KS in 2004. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, golfing and cooking.

BriAnne, Rex and I love being members of the Linn and Miami County communities. I want to meet and help as many people as I can in both regions. Please contact me to discuss your situation and your options. I pride myself on building relationships so I am able to help each person with their individual needs. I look forward to visiting with you.
