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 UNC-Chapel Hill with a concentration in Finance. My career includes over 10 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial Banking space.

I grew up in Johnston County and live in Clayton with my wife, Meagan and two young daughters. Meagan practices dentistry in the Cleveland area and we are passionate about serving our community. Our family loves spending time outdoors, traveling, and playing sports.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
