As a financial advisor, I firmly embrace the principle of putting my clients first and working with them in an atmosphere characterized by trust, integrity and mutual respect.

My client-first commitment to you begins by asking questions and listening to your responses about your current situation and plans for the future. Are you caring for a family? What are your income needs now and during retirement? Are you transitioning your wealth to the next generation?

As we discuss these issues, we’ll work side-by-side to evaluate your current financial picture and explore your investment time horizon and your tolerance for risk. Each of these steps will help us develop a personalized investment program that will be designed to meet your current and projected needs.


Drawn by their client-centered approach to financial services, I joined Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. in 2016 as branch manager and facilitated the opening of our Concord office. I began my financial services career in 1982, and I’m passionate about educating clients and helping them achieve their goals through proper planning and investment strategies.

Outside of work, I like to spend time with my wife, Jan, and our five adult children—Scott, Jess, Tom, Brittany and Becky. I love all water sports—especially kayaking, scuba diving, water skiing, and wakeboarding. I also enjoy playing golf, hiking, traveling and all things Disney. I’m an avid New York Mets baseball and Jets football fan.
