My Professional Approach

As a financial advisor, I firmly embrace the principle of putting my clients first and working with them in an atmosphere characterized by trust, integrity and mutual respect.

My client-first commitment to you begins by asking questions and listening to your responses about your current situation and plans for the future. Are you caring for a family? What are your income needs now and during retirement? Are you transitioning your wealth to the next generation?

As we discuss these issues, we’ll work side-by-side to evaluate your current financial picture and explore your investment time horizon and your tolerance for risk. Each of these steps will help us develop a personalized investment program that will be designed to meet your current and projected needs.

My Background

Drawn by their client-centered approach to financial services, I joined Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. in 2016 as a financial advisor. I began my financial services career in 1987, and I’m passionate about educating clients and helping them achieve their goals through proper planning and investment strategies.

My wife, Christine, and I live in Clearwater, have four children—Robby, Ryan, Rory and Taylor—and love spending time running between cheerleading competitions, football games and golf tournaments. In addition, I enjoy playing golf and I’m an avid fan of the University of Michigan football, Tampa Bay Rays baseball and Buccaneers football teams.
