What’s your background? I have been in the financial services industry since 2001 with extensive experience both as an advisor and a Supervisory Principal.

What degrees do you hold? I have a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida (1989) and an M.S. in Health Services Management from Webster University (1995).
Win any awards? I have been awarded with many honors as a top producer, management leader and service leader. While the awards are great, the award I covet most is the satisfaction of helping clients achieve their personal goals and fulfilling their purpose.
What do you do for fun? I enjoy being in the outdoors, whether I’m camouflaged in the woods or cruising the pristine waters of the Florida coast. Occasionally you can find me on the golf course…or rough.
Tell us about your family: I have been married to Marci since 1995 and we have 3 beautiful children; Travis, Ethan and Lacie. The kids keep us occupied with many activities whether it be at school, Girl Scouts or helping at a fund raiser.
