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 plans for 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.

I began my financial services career in 1997 at A.G. Edwards having served as client associate, financial advisor, and branch manager in the Harrison office. Drawn by their client-centered approach to financial services, I joined Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. as branch manager in 2015 located in Harrison.

Outside of work, I like to spend time with my wife, Mary; and two young children, James and Kate. I also enjoy travel and sports – I’m an avid Arkansas Razorback football and St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. In addition, I enjoy collecting sports and other nostalgic memorabilia.
