As your Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to understand what is important to you, and to use an established process to help you reach your financial goals. Relationships are key, and in our view, meeting face to face builds strong relationships. As a branch team, we utilize technology and many planning tools as we partner with you throughout your lifetime to achieve your financial goals. Whether your goals include preparing for or living in retirement, planning for the unexpected, or establishing charitable giving, we can offer investment solutions tailored for you.

Our branch team consists of several branch office administrators: Stacy Byrd, Nita Gafken, Mandy Tongate and Carrie Buck. With over 30 years of combined experience, they are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service. Stacy and Carrie primarily work with me and my clients. Nita and Mandy are in our office as well and assist when needed.

After receiving a degree in industrial distribution at Texas A&M, I worked in the DFW metroplex area for a few years. This was before I had an opportunity to move back to my hometown of Brownwood where my wife, Marci, grew up too. I have been married over 24 years and have three very active sons: Rylan, Caden and Hudson. As a family, we enjoy following the boys' golf and other sports, hunting and fishing. Over the years, I have enjoyed giving back to our community: serving in various capacities and boards, being active in church, helping coach youth baseball and other sports.

In 1999, I began my career as a financial advisor with Edward Jones. I became a limited partner with Edward Jones in 2007. I have earned the AAMS® professional designation.

I am grateful to be part of this community which has been good to me and my family. I look forward to serving my community and clients for the remainder of my career here at Edward Jones.
