Our approach

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 University of South Carolina with a concentration in Finance. My career includes over 32 years in banking all spent in the Commercial Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients in the Commercial and Industrial space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse, Jessica and I have been married for 23 years. We are the proud parents of a son and daughter who are both in college.

I am passionate about spending my spare time with my family and volunteering for local charities.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
