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 the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a concentration in Business Finance. My career includes over 17 years in Finance with the majority of that time spent in the Equipment finance 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, Meredith, and I have been married for 14 years. We are the proud parents of four kids who are active in the community, school and sports.

I am passionate about spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy volunteering with the local Down Syndrome organizations and across the southeast advocating for changing the perception of how the world views Down Syndrome.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
