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 25 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Business Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients in the Dental, Eyecare, and Professional services space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

I am passionate about spending my spare time both traveling and being close to home. I love to visit exotic locations to go Scuba Diving and explore ancient historical sites. I have a need for speed and drive a Holden Commodore and Ride a GSX-R 750. I also really enjoy domestic activities including cooking, home improvement, and landscaping. Lastly, I've been a season ticket holder for the Seahawks since the stadium opened. Go Hawks!

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
