I began my career at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2006 as an investment associate. Today, as a financial advisor, I help clients create wealth management planning strategies and am responsible for the team’s accountability partnerships and behavioral coaching. An efficient problem solver, I take a personal interest in my clients’ lives and enjoy bringing organization and discipline to their finances to help them achieve their most important goals.
Before making any recommendations, I start by listening, to learn what’s truly important to my clients. I also seek to understand their fears and any obstacles they foresee, together with their time frame, liquidity needs and risk tolerance. Then I assist in developing actionable strategies designed to set clients on the paths toward their dreams.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in History from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. My wife and I, Molly, live in Bishop, Georgia with our two daughters. I am member of Faith Presbyterian Church and am involved with Lifespan Montessori. In my time away from the office, I enjoy traveling, hiking, watching college football and drinking craft beer.
I am also apart of the ARH Wealth Management team, located out of Athens, GA. For more information, please visit ARH Wealth Management.
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.
