As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest my time in understanding 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 and income strategy, so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.

In 2003, I began my Edward Jones career as a financial advisor working in our St. Louis Headquarters. In 2004, I relocated to Pinckneyville, IL, to assume responsibility of my branch office. I have served the firm in various leadership capacities, most recently as Head Coach in Illinois for the Ted Jones Coaching Program. I care deeply about coaching others to be the best they can be.

I earned a bachelor's degree in finance from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale in 2002 and my MBA from Webster University in 2008. In addition, I earned my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation in July 2022.

My wife, Kristy, and I have two children and reside in Pinckneyville. I am an active member of the community, currently serving on the board of St. Bruno Catholic School and the junior high basketball coach.
