Growing up in rural West Lafayette, Ind., I learned many useful skills and the value of hard work. I followed in my dad’s footsteps by attending Purdue University where I met and married my wife of 33 years, Cathy. We have two daughters who make us proud.

After Purdue, I spent 25 years in manufacturing, focused on purchasing. I enjoyed the people I met and worked with, building many great relationships. I especially liked coaching others and sharing my experiences. Having grown up in a university town, settling near Iowa State University felt like home. I enjoy volunteering time in the community and am willing to help wherever I can. I am currently a member of the Nevada Lions Club, Main Street Nevada, the Nevada Historical Society, Nevada Athletic Boosters, Colo-NESCO Athletic Boosters, Collins-Maxwell Athletic Boosters and the West Marshall Athletic Boosters.

I joined Edward Jones in 2015, and my primary focus is to help you get your financial life in order. We'll work together to understand your goals before your money is invested. We'll identify the level of risk you're comfortable accepting so we can balance that with the steps necessary to achieve your long-term objectives. We will also monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to ensure you stay on track.

Combined with established processes and home-office support from Edward Jones, I possess the energy and commitment to put together a strategy to help you reach your dreams.
