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 Hampden-Sydney College with a concentration in Classical History and Political Science. My career includes over 15 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Business Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My wife Holly and I have been married for 18 years. She is an elementary school teacher in Fluvanna. We are the proud parents of three daughters who are all in Fluvanna County Public Schools and very active into sports.

I am passionate about spending my spare time volunteering and currently spearheading the formation of the Fluvanna chapter of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. I also serve on the loan committee for the Charlottesville Investment Collaberative (CIC) in Charlottesville and am a past President of Fluvanna Ruritan Club.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
