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 Georgia State University with a concentration in Finance. My career includes over 12 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 Healthcare and professional Service space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse, Venisha and I have been married for 12 years. We are the proud parents of a three year old boy who is highly inquisitive, full of energy, and loves playing outside.

I am passionate about spending my spare time building and flying drones with my son, and my nephews and nieces. I enjoy teaching them the basics of flight and use these lessons as a foundation to STEM related activities to bolster in home learning.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
