I have been an Edward Jones financial advisor since opening the firm's third Bartlett office in 2001. Previously, I was a partner in a Bartlett CPA firm I founded in 1981. I also served 10 years as an officer with Jefferson-Randolph Corporation, a trucking firm I helped start in 1985.

A native of Corning, AR, I've lived in the Memphis area since completing my bachelor's degree in accounting at Harding University in 1974.

I've long been active in the community through my church, plus various civic and charitable organizations. I was in the 1996 Leadership Bartlett (LB) class, served as president of the LB Alumni in 2000, and have been a long-time member of the Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce.

A lifelong sports participant and fan, it's been my pleasure to serve as the PA announcer for Bartlett Panther basketball since 1991. Panther football games were added to my duties in 2017. The 2021 WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational will mark my 24th year as a volunteer at this PGA tour event. I also served for many years on the Memphis-East Arkansas Razorback Club board and coached several of my kids' youth sports teams.

My family has been very involved with Agape Child & Family Services in Memphis for nearly 30 years. Prior to the passing of my wife, Tricia, in 2013, we served as foster parents to more than 25 children, two of whom became adopted siblings to our two older children. I've served on the agency's board since 1993, including 10 years as board chair. It has been an honor to have our service as a family recognized by various organizations over the years.

Edward Jones has been a great blessing to my family, which now includes my wife, Judy, along with our six children and five grandchildren. It's been my privilege to build relationships with many wonderful clients as well as be a limited partner in the firm. I am honored and humbled by the trust our clients place in me to help them achieve their financial goals....my goal is to always be worthy of that trust.
