I am dedicated to helping clients stay on track to meet their retirement and education goals.
I have been in the financial services industry for 18 years working with families as their advocate and trusted advisor when making financial decisions.
The foundation for my investment process is centered in goals-based planning. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, I want to help you make strategic investment decisions that align with market conditions and your comfort with risk. My goal is to develop and consistently revisit, an individually tailored plan to manage your total balance sheet.
I was born and raised in Jefferson City, Missouri, the third of four boys where hard work, humility and serving your community molded how I interact with clients today. I am a proud Mizzou grad and enjoy returning for football and basketball games each year.
I have three daughters (Olivia, Blair and Margot) that keep my wife Whitney and I very busy! We are members at St Genevieve du Bois Parish in Warson Woods, MO and love traveling, cooking, and visiting our family farm near Booneville, MO.

Why Choose a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional?
Most people think all financial planners are “Certified,” but this isn’t true. Anyone can say they are a “financial planner”. Individuals who fulfill requirements established by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. have demonstrated a high level of competency, professionalism, and ethics. Only those financial advisors who have completed the rigorous education and testing requirements can claim the CFP® distinction.
What can you Expect Working with a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional?
CFP Board Rules of Conduct require CFP® Professionals to put your interests ahead of their own at all times and to provide their financial planning services as a “fiduciary.”
