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 a skilled team of specialists help me tailor solutions to fit you and your organization. Clients appreciate our trusted partnership and collaboration in planning for long-term success.

I earned my undergraduate degree from University of South Carolina Moore School of Business. My career includes over ten years of commercial banking across commercial and small business sectors.

My wife, Colleen, and I have been married for 9 years. We are the proud parents of two boys, Wesley (5) and Duncan (3), and a beautiful girl, Riley (8 months). We live in Lexington, SC and have been in the Columbia area ever since graduating from the University of South Carolina.

I am passionate about serving my community. I am currently the President-Elect of the USC Association of Lettermen, a non-profit organization aimed at utilizing the skills of Lettermen to mentor student-athletes. Other board involvement includes Greater Columbia Education Advancement Foundation, Columbia Tip Off Club, and Greatest Champion Foundation. My service on these Boards reveals my passion in the community as it relates to faith, education, and sports.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn and Facebook.
