    • Managing Director - Investment Officer

    As a Managing Director - Investments and Senior Financial Advisor with Wells Fargo Advisors, I provide comprehensive investment planning to both individual and corporate investors.

    Background and experience

    For over 30 years I have helped clients develop and maintain customized investment strategies by focusing on each individual’s specific needs. With extensive experience throughout major shifts in the markets, I have dedicated my career to delivering the personalized investment planning services my clients deserve.

    I began my career as a Financial Advisor with A. G. Edwards, a predecessor firm of Wells Fargo Advisors, in 1993, where I have developed a fundamental investment knowledge. I also served as a Branch manager with the firm.  I feel financial advice always starts with an in depth analysis of an investors needs and goals. Once completed, I apply an investment approach that includes both strategic and tactical allocation to help manage risk efficiently.

    I attended the University of North Texas and Texas Tech University where I graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications and Public Address and Business.

    Away from the office

    I enjoy time with my family traveling to new places or boating. I have been married to Erika, my wife, for 25 years.  I have two sons Erik and Bradley and we have lived in Flower Mound for 23 years. We enjoy supporting the Boy Scouts of America through troop 262 and The Flower Mound High School Orchestra.  Go JAGS!  Our oldest son is attending Texas Christian University in Fort Worth where he studies Finance and Real Estate.  Go Frogs!!
