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 University of Puget Sound with a concentration in History. My career includes over 20 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients in medical and professional services that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My wife, Sue and I have been married for 26 years. We are the proud parents of two daughters who've launched their careers and a son in college.

I am passionate about making a difference in my community through Rotary. Serving as Treasurer for 15 years and then recently as President, I have helped lead large-scale park and education related programs. Our club's current focus in helping the vulnerable members of our community deal with food and housing insecurity. I'm proud that my entire family is civic-minded and that we're able to do good work together.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
