I grew up in the small town of Heppner in Eastern Oregon. I enjoyed fishing, horseback riding, competitive swimming and became an Eagle Scout. After graduation I served four years active duty in the United States Air Force. I attended Oregon State University (Go Beavs!) and graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree in business administration.

In 1990 I began working at First Interstate Bank, where I met my wife, Cece. We've been married for 28 years and have two amazing children, Patrick and Megan. They were both born and raised here in Gresham. My wife and I recently became empty nesters and enjoy visiting the family cabin on the lake, fishing and boating, traveling and spending time with family and friends in Eastern Oregon.

While living in Gresham, I've served as a board member for the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce, Chairman of the Administrative Council at St. Henry's Parrish, and coached Gresham Little League, Mt. Hood Junior Baseball, C.Y.O. Basketball and Barlow Youth Football. I've been a guest speaker at Eastern Oregon University and at Oregon Institute of Technology.

In 1997 I opened the second Edward Jones office in Gresham. I enjoy getting to know my clients, learning about their families, helping them create and live their dreams and prepare their legacy. Because we are all different, I personalize each financial strategy to fit your needs and goals. I especially enjoy helping clients with complex financial issues who can benefit from my knowledge and years of experience.

My partner and branch office administrator is Kristy. She has 15 years experience in the financial industry and has been a great asset to my team. She was raised in Sandy where she lives with her husband and two daughters.

Together we'll help you create a personalized strategy to achieve your financial goals. We look forward to meeting you and learning what's important to you. It all starts with a single conversation. Lets get started.
