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.

In 2002, I began my Edward Jones career as a financial advisor in Raymore. I worked for Tektronix, Inc. in Wilsonville, OR, as a senior buyer and financial analyst from 1992 to 2000. I worked for Network Elements, Inc. in Beaverton, OR, as a purchasing manager from 2000 to 2002.

I attended Olivet Nazarene University and graduated magna cum laude in 1990 with a bachelor's degree in general engineering. I earned an MSM in finance from Purdue University in 1992. In addition, I received the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2007 and the Certified Private Wealth Advisor® certification in 2023.

My wife, Joy, and I have four children – Nathan, Jaron, Ross and Annelise – and three grandchildren, Noah, Adalyn and Hope. Joy is a private piano teacher and director of the Virtuosity Program at Summit Christian Academy (SCA) and two of our children, Ross and Annelise, graduated from SCA. Nathan and Jaron graduated from Raymore-Peculiar High School. We have been married since 1990. My family and I have lived in Raymore since 2002. I'm originally from Indiana.

I have served Edward Jones as a coach, field trainer, mentor, consultant and talent acquisition team member. I am an active member of the community, having served on the Belton Regional Medical Center Trustee Board from 2010 to 2013 and on the Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation Board from 2006 to 2021.
