    How I got here….

    I spent my early years in South Texas, but most of my growing up happened in Shawnee, OK. After graduating from University of Oklahoma in 1983, with a degree in Business Management, I started my career in the financial services industry. I have been blessed to have represented several respected companies such as Merrill Lynch and Smith Barney, and in 2011, along with a team of advisors, I joined Wells Fargo Advisors. Our practice is named The Meritage Group of Wells Fargo Advisors, and I am proud to be the founding member of this group.

    Away from work, my life consists of my wife Stacye, children Matt, Luke and Allie and grandson, P.J.  Stacye and I are full time drivers and audiences to our kids sporting events, recitals, concerts and music “gigs”.  When we find time to relax, we enjoy annual family vacations to the beach, and occasionally find ourselves in wine country or the mountains. Sundays, you will find our family at New Covenant United Methodist Church in Edmond and together for family dinners afterwards.

     

    Favorite part of my work….

    As a Senior PIM Portfolio Manager, constructing investment portfolios for our clients and actively managing those portfolios is truly a passion of mine after almost 35 years in the industry. While managing money for others can be stressful at times, it gives me great joy to see our clients realizing their goals of secure retirement, paying for college and passing estates to people they love.  Working side by side many clients for two to three decades and beyond, gives me rewarding, lifelong relationships with people that I could never have within most other careers. Attending their children’s graduations and weddings and coming to know their grandchildren is a special part of our client relationships. This job becomes very personal after many, many years and I look forward to many more relationships for many years.
