I am very comfortable with the dynamics of an ever-changing world. While this helps me to recognize the value of technology with regard to decision-making, it can’t fully replace some of the traditional aspects of communication. I enjoy face-to-face interactions and am fulfilled by actually talking with people, particularly when this concludes with a good old-fashioned handshake.

My father, Chris, has been a tremendous influence in shaping my career. I consider him to be one of the best in this field, and by learning from him, I hope to gain a head start in my own journey and acquire the best practices of today's age. Growing up, I had the privilege of witnessing the connections and relationships he built with clients, which left a lasting impression on me. It was something I knew I wanted to be a part of. Additionally, I've always had a natural aptitude for numbers and a keen ability to understand their significance. As I progressed through my education, this knack played an increasingly significant role in my understanding of the financial world and its intricacies.

Being born and raised in the greater St Louis area, I’ve had the opportunity to meet a wide range of individuals from all backgrounds and appreciate the relationships I’ve developed. I reside in New Melle Missouri and value the ability to be close to large city resources while still getting the great benefit of a small town. The rural area fosters a tight-knit community where people know and care for one another. It’s a simple place that I feel fortunate to call home.

I enjoy being active and frequently outdoors. When I’m not in the office, you’ll find me duck hunting, playing hockey, or proudly supporting my alma mater, Ole Miss where I majored in finance with an emphasis on entrepreneurship.
