The investment insights of Merrill, along with access to the banking services and lending solutions of Bank of America, can offer a range of potential opportunities in today’s fast-moving economy. In this environment, we believe you should have a financial advisor who asks thoughtful questions, can call upon a global network of specialists and can offer thought leadership that can be instrumental in helping you pursue your financial goals.
I serve individual investors, families, businesses, and business owners with their varied and complex financial needs. I believe in treating my clients as I would like to be treated, a simple idea that still makes sense in today's ever-changing world.
Prior to my career as a financial advisor, I served for ten years as an officer in the United States Marine Corps. My primary occupation as a Marine was as an aviator, flying the F/A-18D Hornet. I grew up in the DC Metro Area and, after serving around the world, decided to come home and serve my community. I am a member of the Prince William County Chamber of Commerce; and serve on their Veteran and Policy Committees.
I hold a bachelor's degree in history from Virginia Tech. In addition, I hold a master's degree in public policy with a focus on national security from George Mason University. I hold Series 7 and 66 FINRA registrations, as well as Virginia, Maryland, and District of Columbia Life and Annuities insurance licenses. I am also registered as an Accredited Asset Management Specialist® with the College for Financial Planning.
I have been married to my wife, Nikki, for over ten years, and our son, Cameron, was born in 2013.
I believe it is important to invest time in understanding what you are working toward before you invest your hard-earned money. The financial world can sometimes seem like foreign territory, and it is my goal to make the complex understandable. It is important to know what is important to you so I can help you grow and preserve your wealth. I believe in working as a team to effectively create a comprehensive financial strategy best suited to achieve your individual and financial goals.
My clients have a variety of financial and personal needs, which often fall into five categories:
-Education Expense Planning
-Insurance and Asset Preservation
-Legacy and Estate Planning services
Whether you are accumulating wealth, investing for income, or safeguarding your legacy, I can help you and your business at any stage.
