I began working with Edward Jones in 2015 in Elgin. I truly enjoy helping make a difference in people's lives, personally and financially. I take particular pleasure in helping small business owners keep more of the money they make. As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to understand what your goals are before you invest your money. My priority is to get to know my clients and their families. Likewise, I would like you to know a little more about me.

I grew up in Streamwood, IL and graduated from Streamwood High and ECC. I worked for six years in Schaumburg at Unocal 76. During that time, I also attended Roosevelt University. After graduating, I worked for 21 years as a Care Ministries and Community Life Pastor at local churches. I helped people manage many of life's crises including unemployment, loss, illness, military care and financial challenges.

My branch office administrator is Maralee Robertson. She is extremely qualified, having worked in this industry since 2000, and prides herself with providing the highest level of service possible.

On a personal note, I have been married to my amazing wife, Joy, for 31 years. We reside in Elgin and together we have raised three beautiful children. We enjoy home remodeling, board games, long walks and vacationing any place warm with a beach! We are active members of West Ridge Community Church in Elgin. I coached in Elgin Continental and Classic Little Leagues for 14 years and enjoy golfing leisurely. I am an active member of the Elgin Township Triad, which serves senior citizens in our community, and the Elgin Men's Shed which helps people in need by doing building projects to serve individuals and our community.

I look forward to continuing to serve the community as an Edward Jones financial advisor and assist my clients in reaching their long-term financial goals.
