I joined Edward Jones out of a desire to help individuals build financial security and reach their goals. As a financial advisor, I understand financial security is a difficult thing to build in today's society, as there is always a newer car, nicer house, better school, etc. It takes discipline to build a strategy to prioritize your short-term wants and needs vs. your long-term goals.

When discussing money, many emotions are involved. You may feel excitement, anxiety, fear, shame or uncertainty, but just know that you are not alone. I have experienced these emotions in my own life, as have many other people, and it is my commitment to foster an environment where you can feel comfortable sharing your story. My ultimate goal is to provide you with confidence in your future and help you navigate all phases of life along the way, by developing a personalized strategy that fits your needs.

Growing up as a small-town kid from Winchester, IL, my parents instilled the core values of hard work, dedication, honesty and respect, which I still practice today. In 2013, I obtained my master's degree in accounting from Saint Louis University (SLU), and then spent the first five years of my professional career with two large firms in St. Louis performing audit and mergers and acquisitions work.

I met my wife, Katie, in St. Louis, after we both graduated from SLU. Once we became engaged, we moved back to her hometown of Springfield in 2018 in order to be closer to family and friends. We love Springfield and currently reside on the west side, where we enjoy traveling, going to parks, working out and frequenting our favorite restaurants. We also love to grill out, hang by the pool and watch sports. And if you golf, you can find me playing in golf leagues at local courses.

But let's talk about you. Interested in a complimentary review or learning more? Give me a call at 217-698-8583, connect with me on LinkedIn or follow me on Facebook.
