First, a short background on myself. I was born and raised on a farm in rural Kendall County south of Yorkville, where my parents, Steve and Linda, raised five kids. I graduated from Yorkville High School in 1996, staying active playing multiple sports while in high school including cross country, basketball and track. I attended Waubonsee Community College and then Illinois State University and majored in mathematics with an endorsement in education.

Upon graduation, I started my career as a mathematics teacher and (basketball, tennis, cross country) coach in the Oswego 308 CUSD. While teaching, I also earned my master's degree in educational leadership from the University of St. Francis.

Currently my wife, Amy, and I live in Yorkville and are raising three kids, Chloe, Quinn and Sawyer.

In addition to attending football and baseball games throughout the year, I am a member of the Kendall County Board (district 1), CASA Kendall County and the Yorkville Kiwanis. Within the business community, I am also a member of the Yorkville Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Montgomery Chamber of Commerce.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest my time to understand what you're working toward before you invest your money. It's also important to understand the level of risk you're comfortable accepting when investing so we can balance it with the steps necessary to reach your long-term goals.

It is my passion to partner with people to help them reach their financial dreams and goals. Whether it is preserving their estate, reaching retirement, saving for college or needing protection from the worst-case scenario, my clients know that I am there for them every step along their journey.

In the little free time that I have, I enjoy renovating our home, golfing and spending time with friends and family.
