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.

I earned my bachelors degree from UNC Greensboro with a concentration in choral music education. My career includes over 15 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial and Retail 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 Patti and I have been married for 8 years. We are the proud parents of two boys, Parker and Harrison, and one girl, Caroline.
I am passionate about spending time traveling with my family and getting involved in my community. I've been a member of Carmel Baptist Church for 33 years and am very active in their music and children's ministry. As a Charlotte native, I've had the opportunity to watch Charlotte grow into the thriving city you see today.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
