I have been in the financial services industry for more than 30 years. I started at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and served as a Resident Manager for 10 of my 17 years there. The past 12 years I have been a First Vice President - Investments with Wells Fargo Advisors and have now rejoined Merrill in June of 2019.

I graduated from the University of Missouri in 1979 with a BS in Education. I was also Co-Captain of the 1979 Football Team. Upon graduation I was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. I played with the Cowboys from 1980 - 1987 and retired due to a knee injury. It was a great thrill to learn the principles of discipline, consistency, and attitude from Coach Tom Landry and his staff.

All the lessons I learned on the football field seem to relate to the investment world also. I feel that all of my educational activities keeps me on the cutting edge of retirement and portfolio management.

Here are just a few interests of mine:  Fishing, Hunting, Reading, Golf, Outdoors, Spending time with Family, and Sporting Events.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.

About Me

As a Merrill advisor, I offer advice and guidance based on you and your family's goals and priorities.
