As your Edward Jones branch team, we believe it is important to work together with you to understand what is most important to you. By fully understanding your goals and comfort with risk, I can help develop a comprehensive strategy to achieve those goals. I will partner with you, your family and related professionals like your CPA and estate attorney to help ensure your strategies help you arrive at your financial destination.

I joined Edward Jones in 1995, opening the firm's second branch office in Florence.

I earned a master's degree from Clemson University and the Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) professional designation in 1999. The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. awards CFP® certification to individuals who meet the board’s requirements for professionalism in financial services. To gain certification, a financial advisor must pass the CFP® Certification Examination and the CFP Board’s Fitness Standards for Candidates and Registrants, agree to abide by the CFP Board’s Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility and comply with the Financial Planning Practice Standards.

I am active in the community and serve in various organizations, including the Boy Scouts, Chamber of Commerce and First Presbyterian Church. I am an Eagle Scout and a former U.S. Naval officer. My wife, Margaret, and I have three children. My oldest child, Caroline Toniolo, has joined me as a financial advisor and we now have two grandchildren.

Our branch office administrators, Hilda Hutto and Madison Howard, are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service. Hilda has been a valued member of our team for over 23 years and we are pleased to welcome Madison as a new member of our team. Please don't hesitate to call on them with any questions.

We provide highly personalized service. All aspects of our business are aligned to help us better understand and meet our clients' unique goals and needs.
