With some proper perspective and prudent planning, we believe that any of the goals that we set for ourselves are well within our grasp. That’s what I love most about the opportunity to work with families and business owners: co-creating strategies that help empower them to live life with purpose and joy.

I began my career in the financial services industry with The Hartford, assisting financial advisors across the country with education, resources, and strategies to help them help their clients. From there, I came to Edward Jones in 2009 to help my community in Batesville, MS, north Mississippi, and beyond to do the same.

On a personal note, my wife, Rosemary, and I live just outside of Batesville, MS with our son, Sanders, daughter, Livy, and two dogs. We love traveling, participating in ultra-marathons and triathlons, spending time outdoors, cooking, great music, and being active in our community.

107 Public Square
Batesville MS 38606

With some proper perspective and prudent planning, we believe that any of the goals that we set for ourselves are well within our grasp. That’s what I love most about the opportunity to work with families and business owners: co-creating strategies that help empower them to live life with purpose and joy.

I began my career in the financial services industry with The Hartford, assisting financial advisors across the country with education, resources, and strategies to help them help their clients. From there, I came to Edward Jones in 2009 to help my community in Batesville, MS, north Mississippi, and beyond to do the same.

On a personal note, my wife, Rosemary, and I live just outside of Batesville, MS with our son, Sanders, daughter, Livy, and two dogs. We love traveling, participating in ultra-marathons and triathlons, spending time outdoors, cooking, great music, and being active in our community.

My branch office administrators, Cindy Brewer and Leslie Wilson, and I feel so very fortunate to have the opportunity to help others and make a difference in the lives of families in our community and around the country. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey!
