I began my financial services career in 1983 at A.G. Edwards & Sons. In 1989, I was named an assistant branch manager and was promoted to branch manager for the firm’s Clayton, MO office in 1995. In 2010, I moved to Benjamin F. Edwards to open the Clayton branch as branch manager and regional leader.
Dedicated to assisting my clients as they work toward their financial goals, I often rely on professional money managers to help meet long-term family and estate-planning needs. Previously a professional hockey player for 11 years, I played for Minnesota, Philadelphia, St. Louis and Detroit. I’m married with four adult children and ten grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, fitness, food, wine and golf.
