Get to know me

As a First Citizens business 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 22 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Business Banking space. I have been with First Citizens since 2002. My specific focus has been working with clients in the Medical, Dental, Veterinarian space, as well as Industrial and Operating companies that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse, Patti, and I have been married for three years. I have a son in college and a daughter that is a rising senior at Summerville High School. My wife, Patti's children are both out of college and are just beginning their professional careers.

I am passionate about education in our community and have been honored to serve as a Trustee on the Dorchester District Two Board since 2014. I am also an active member of the Summerville Rotary Club and have served in leadership positions on various non-profit boards throughout my 20-year residency in Summerville. In our spare time my wife and I enjoy sports, traveling, gardening and the amenities of Pine Forest Country Club. We have two amazing dogs, Lacey, who is 12 years old and a retired service dog, and her best friend Ginny, who is a 2-year-old Golden Doodle.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
