Get to know me

As a First Citizens 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 bachelor's degree from Wofford College. My career includes over 14 years in banking, with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial Banking space.

My wife, Patricia, and I have been married for 13 years. We are the proud parents of three children - a daughter and son in elementary school and another daughter in pre-school. They are into everything, all the time!

As a family we enjoy spending time together, whether it be corralling everyone in the woods, on the water, on the beach or on the golf course...pretty much anywhere outside. My wife and I try to model community service to our children, encouraging them to give back and stay engaged with our local church.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
