As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, I am committed to helping individuals and families optimize their financial lives in order to pursue their short and long term aspirations. I thoroughly enjoy analyzing investments and financial products so that I can provide custom recommendations to each client I have the privilege to work with every day.
Prior to entering the financial planning profession, I spent six seasons in the communications departments of the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League. Working with professional executives, coaches, players and media on a daily basis taught me how to effectively communicate with a diverse group of people in a fast-paced environment. In 2011 and 2016 with the Texans, our department received the Pete Rozelle Award, given annually to the top public relations staff in the NFL.
I graduated magna cum laude from Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO) in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Sport Management and a minor in Business Administration. The business coursework, as well as my passion for numbers and statistics, provided a strong foundation for my transition into the financial world.
My wife, Ashley, and I met at SEMO in 2008 and have been married since 2014. We have two daughters, Scarlett and Natalie, and son Owen. During our free time, we enjoy spending time together outdoors, visiting as many trails, parks and lakes as we can!
