Get to know me

As a First Citizens Business 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.

My career includes over 15 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Business Banking space. I enjoy helping clients that are in all kinds of different verticals to see what a true relationship bank looks like.

My spouse, Jin and I have been married for 16 years and have 3 amazing kids Bree(16), Brady(10) and Baylee(7). Bree is the genius in the family and will graduate HS one year early with a full year of college complete. Brady is the golfer in the family and has been playing since he was 3. He plays on local tours with kids his age in the Dacula area. Baylee is the teacher in the house. She is always reminding us to love Jesus and one another.

I am passionate about serving at my church, being a Rotarian and family time. My family and I love playing golf together, boating on Lake Lanier, watching football and family vacations.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
