I create personalized financial plans for individuals and families to help them realize their goals.
I enjoy helping individuals and families put together personalized financial plans, based upon their risk tolerance. Getting to know my clients and their risk tolerance allows me to develop and implement the right investment plan to help pursue their goals. Once the plan is in place, we will meet regularly to review the plan and make changes as needed.
I grew up in St. Louis as part of a large, boisterous family known for its great sense of humor and adventurous spirit. After graduating from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama, I started with Central Investment Advisors located at Central Bank of the Lake of the Ozarks in Osage Beach, Missouri. In 2011, I had the opportunity to move to Columbia, Missouri, to join the team of LPL Financial Advisors located at Central Bank of Boone County. My wife Ellie and I have three boys who keep us very busy with their sporting events and other outdoor activities. During my free time I enjoy golfing with my family and friends.

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.”
Your personal information is safeguarded and never shared with anyone without your prior written approval.
Fees and costs associated with any investment plan or product are disclosed to you prior to being charged or collected
Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) owns the CFP® certification mark, the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification mark, and the CFP® certification mark (with plaque design) logo in the United States, which it authorizes the use of by individuals who successfully complete CFP Board initial and ongoing certification requirements.
