Get to know me

As a First Citizens 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 have been actively working with business owners throughout my 20+ year banking career in Kansas City. I grew up in an entrepreneurial household and have always respected the courage and challenge of business ownership. For that reason, I have always enjoyed advising and supporting businesses that are making a difference in our community.

I am passionate about being active in the community. I enjoy working with new entrepreneurs through the Johnson County Small Business Development Center. I am also active in CCIM and other real estate organizations. I serve through my church, KC Pet Project and Hillcrest Transitional Housing.

I have been a long time resident of Kansas City living in the Northland with my wife, Lisa and two girls.

I invite you to contact me directly or through LinkedIn.
