I believe that people come first. I also believe that having a strong financial foundation creates a sort of freedom and independence from certain burdens in life, and in turn, provides the capacity to focus on life and build those relationships that truly matter.

I joined Edward Jones in 2005 with the goal of moving back "home" to start a family and build a business. Since then, I have been able to do both. I have two beautiful daughters, a patient wife and an ornery German Short-Haired Pointer named Motley where I call home. I thoroughly enjoy my work, which has given me the opportunity to partner with some of the finest families in central Virginia and aid in their financial goals.

Outside of family and work, I enjoy playing the guitar and woodworking. Naturally, these two passions have sort of collided over time and created a more recent interest in luthiery. I am still working on convincing my wife to support this new hobby, as it can be expensive and has been known to take up kitchen space. I've always enjoyed working and conclude that hard work can fix just about anything. For this reason alone, I also "enjoy" exercising. Years ago, I became an Eagle Scout by organizing and constructing the timber-frame covered bridge in Fighting Creek Park. I often times find myself still in that inquisitive "scouting" mentality. I love the outdoors, and am amazed at how, and why, nature can be so complex and simultaneously simple.

Jessica Nuckols, my senior branch office administrator, joined me in 2009. She never seems to tire from doing what is right. Jessica is also married and has two great children! She enjoys travelling, yoga, reading and home improvement projects.

Jessica and I both share an enthusiasm for wanting to understand what's important to you. We have an established process to help you build personalized strategies to achieve your goals and will partner with you and your family over time to help keep you on track!
