At Edward Jones, we focus on serving the financial needs of individual investors of all ages and financial means. We have built our business by treating our clients as we would want to be treated; a simple idea that still makes sense in today’s complex marketplace.

I was born in Novosibirsk, Russia, and spent the early parts of my life growing up in the outskirts of Siberia. At the age of 10, my mother and I relocated to the United States, and within a year’s time, we found ourselves living in the North Georgia Mountains. I attended the University of North Georgia, where I graduated as a four-time dean's list recipient with a degree in international affairs.

Prior to joining Edward Jones, I briefly worked as an insurance agent for Kassouf Insurance Agency. Afterwards, I began my career in the financial industry as an account executive with an investment relations company, Acorn Management Partners. Over the course of three years, I worked my way up to becoming the sr. vice president of their ETF Division.

I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor in April 2017, and moved to Blairsville, GA, where I assumed responsibility for the firm’s second branch office. Working for Edward Jones is a true blessing and I am grateful in knowing that we share the same core value of making sure that our clients’ interests always come first.

As a proud resident of Blairsville, I enjoy staying active within my community. I support our local businesses as a member of our local Chamber of Commerce and as the president of the Mountain Networking Referral Group. In addition, I am the president of the Blairsville Kiwanis Club, a Sigma Chi Fraternity alumni and an Eagle Scout. However, my most gratifying, and sometimes most challenging role, is that of a husband to my amazing wife, Claire.

At Edward Jones, we focus on you. The firm has thousands of people and advanced technology supporting our office so that we can help you and your family reach your long-term financial goals.
