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.

My career includes over 25 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Business Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients in the medical/dental and manufacturing spaces that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse, Kalee and I have been married 13 years. We are proud parents to our 9 year old son, Gunner and 2 year old daughter, Hope.

I am passionate about spending my spare time volunteering for youth baseball in our local community and supporting veterans in the Honor Flight Network. This non-profit organization brings veterans who served in WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and terminally ill veterans to visit the memorials in Washington DC. I have coached youth baseball for the past 10 years with a local club team. We focus primarily on showcase/travel baseball which involves significant travel but allows us to spend a lot of time together as a family. Our teams have won several national tournaments and a Babe Ruth World Series Title.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
