For over 20 years I have worked with a select group of individuals, families, businesses and institutions to help them build, manage, preserve and transition their wealth. Comprehensive wealth is much more than just investments. I address risk management with insurance and other asset preservation strategies, in addition to liability management. I also help my clients leave their legacies through the trust, estate and fiduciary services provided by our Wells Fargo affiliates. Most of all, I bring to each relationship energy, passion, commitment and dedication to help you succeed financially.
I began my career as a Financial Advisor with Chapman Securities in Wichita, Kansas, where I developed my fundamental investment knowledge. In 1998, I joined Everen Securities in Topeka, Kansas, a predecessor firm of Wells Fargo Advisors, and in 2001 took a team approach as an associate in the Kirkpatrick Investment Group of Wells Fargo Advisors.
I grew up in Topeka and attended Topeka West High School. I later earned my Bachelor's degree in International Business from Wichita State University. While at Wichita State, I married Janette. We currently reside in Lawrence, Kansas, with our two children. Away from the office, I spend my free time with Janette, our daughter, Kennedy, and son, Parker. Kennedy will now be closer to home. She will be attending medical school at the University of Kansas after finishing her final year of playing collegiate basketball for the Northern Iowa Panthers. In the spring and summer, we travel the nation with Parker and watch him play baseball for the Northern Illinois Huskies. While traveling, we take in some of the local culture, going to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, the Oklahoma City Memorial, or just enjoying the barbeque in Memphis after touring Graceland. Most of all, we cherish time relaxing at home, taking in a movie and being with family and friends.
