I've been a financial advisor for over 23 years, joining Merrill in 2010. I began my career with Morgan Stanley in Atlanta. I'm a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certificant, a designation awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. I currently hold the Series 7, 9, 10, 31, 63 & 65 FINRA registrations.
I am a graduate of Georgia State University in Atlanta where I earned a bachelor’s degree in education.
I am passionate about serving the children of my community. For over 10 years, I've volunteered for the Boys & Girls Clubs on local, regional and national levels. I serve as a board member and Past Chief Volunteer Officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier. For my work with the Boys & Girls Clubs, I was named as a finalist for the Volunteer of the Year Award by the Invest in Others Charitable Foundation in 2015. Under my leadership as Board Chair, the Boys of Girls Clubs of Lanier was named as the top performing board in 2014 for the state of Georgia and the southeastern United States by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I also serve as a board member and officer for the Georgia Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs. I served as an advisory board member for Sugar Hill Christian Academy for over 6 years. I played 2 years of college baseball and coached youth baseball for several years. I'm a graduate of Leadership Hall County.
I've been married to my wife, Sandy, for 24 years and we have 3 children: Christian, Nicholas and Carly. When not spending time with family or following baseball, I enjoy golf, fly fishing and cooking.
