Get to know me

As First Citizens Bank Equipment and Lease Finance Officers, our primary goal is to assist businesses with all their equipment and vehicle financing needs. Our consultative approach is to fully understand the capital expenditure needs of our customers, and to then provide the best financing solutions, and professional service.

I earned my Bachelors degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). My career includes over 25 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in equipment finance and leasing. I have worked with clients from all around the country and in many different industries and enjoy helping them acquire the equipment they need to grow their business.

My wife and I have been married for 17 years. We are the proud parents of two children who are both in high school and very active in sports and outdoor activities. We enjoy spending time at the lake and doing outdoor activities together as a family.
