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.

Born and raised in the mountains of North Carolina, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from UNC-Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. My career in financial services includes over 20 years of serving businesses and professionals, all in the Triangle. I'm seeking to meet faith-based business owners and professionals, across both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors.

My wife, Courtney, and I have been married for over 12 years. We are the proud parents of two rambunctious boys, Davis and Anderson.

I am passionate about spending my spare time serving my church and volunteering with local nonprofits, as well as supporting youth athletics. As a former Club Baseball player while at UNC, I have a passion for helping athletes reach their potential. We are now very involved with i9 Sports which helps me keep my farmer's tan in peak condition and allows us to make memories together as a family.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn and Facebook or by email and phone. Have a blessed day!
