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 the University of South Carolina with a concentration in Finance and Economics. I am furthering my education as a current MBA candidate at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. My career includes 10 years in commercial banking with a specific focus working with clients in the commercial and industrial space.

My wife, Sarah and I recently celebrated our 1 year anniversary and on any given evening you can find us eating out at local restaurants in Columbia or taking our golden retriever to the dog park!

I am passionate about spending my spare time volunteering with the United Way of the Midlands. I have been involved with the United Way in many different capacities, most recently as Past Chair of the Young Leaders Society, and I always walk away feeling a sense of pride about the good and necessary work this organization does in our community. I also serve on the board of Richland County First Steps and serve on their finance committee.
