Personal Biography:

     While working my way toward a business degree at The University of Tennessee-Chattanooga I accepted an apprentice position with a financial planning company.  That part time position became a full time career and a year later I relocated to open a branch office for the company in Nashville, TN.  Within eight years our office had over 20 full time brokers and was a multi-million dollar operation.  With the sale of the firm a few years later I decided to focus my career on serving clients instead of managing brokers and set up an independent financial planning practice in 1993. Today I am blessed to serve over 300 clients in 12 states.  My wife Jennefer & I live in Franklin, TN (where all three of our children grew up) and have been active in the Grassland Community over 20 years.  I was honored to serve as President of the Grassland Athletic Association and the Franklin High Quarterback Club.
