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 skilled team of specialists help me tailor solutions to fit you and your organization. Clients appreciate our trusted partnership in planning for long-term success.

I earned my Bachelors degree from Columbus State University. My career includes over 20 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients in the Commercial and Industrial space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse, Cathryn and I have been married for 18 years. We are the proud parents of a son Ayden who is a Sophomore at North Gwinnett High School and very active into sports.

I am passionate about spending my spare time volunteering for youth athletics in our local communities. I have coached travel baseball and youth football until late last year. We are now very involved with Showcase/travel baseball which involves a significant amount of travel on weekends throughout the year, but allows us to spend a lot of time together as a family.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
