I grew up in a one stoplight farm town in rural Indiana. As a kid I had a few passions... Playing basketball with neighborhood kids, collecting sports cards and working for local farmers to make a few bucks so I could pad my savings account. When I started my first job out of college, I already understood the value of a dollar and was excited to start my own 401(k). It wasn't long before I discovered and sought out a career as a financial advisor. After meeting with a few Edward Jones financial advisors in late 2006, I knew it was the place where I could see myself for a long time. My goal was and has been to work with others who value their hard work and savings as much as I do.

My goal is to partner with clients who are interested in engaging in our established, five-step process. By doing so, we can establish a personalized strategy to partner with you over the course of time to help you achieve your unique goals either for yourself or your family.

My wife, Melissa, and I reside in Edwardsburg, MI with our two daughters, Naylee and Ryla. I enjoy time with my family, which includes traveling, pool days and volunteering to help coach my kids' sports teams. I am a diehard Purdue Sports fan, a John Purdue Club Member and I enjoy watching as many Purdue football and basketball games as possible.

During my time here in Niles, I have focused my volunteer time on a few nonprofit boards as well as the Niles Optimist Club. Currently, I serve on the Spectrum Lakeland Hospital Foundation board of directors and I'm still an active member of Optimists.

My branch office administrator, Paige Gaideski, has been taking care of clients here at Edward Jones since 1998 and with me since late 2017. You will find that Paige has a true servant heart and is passionate about helping our clients. We truly enjoy creating relationships and getting to know them on a personal level. We look forward to an opportunity to meet with you and see if we would be a good mutual fit.
