Get to know me

As a First Citizens commercial banker, it's important to invest in understanding your business, strategies and key objectives. An established process and a skilled team of specialists help me tailor solutions to fit you and your organization. Clients appreciate our trusted partnership and collaboration in planning for long-term success.

I earned my college degree from the University of Georgia with a degree in Economics with a focus in Finance. My career includes over 15 years of banking experience within the commercial lending and credit space.

I was born and raised in Atlanta, and currently live in Cobb County with my wife and three beautiful children. My focus is on my family and helping my community prosper and grow.

I look forward to working with you in the future.
