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 am a proud graduate of the Clemson University where I received a Bachelor’s Degree and a Masters of Business Administration and Masters of Finance from Webster University. My career in banking began over 16 years ago, and I have spent much of that time in the commercial and business banking space. I have a passion for learning about my clients’ businesses, and have had the pleasure of working with many Industrial and Commercial clients in the growth phase of the business cycle.
My wife, Kenesha, and I have been married for over 13 years. We are the proud parents of two kids who are active in the community, school, and sports. They keep us busy and bring us so much joy.
I am a native of Orangeburg County SC. I am passionate about spending my spare time with family and friends enjoying food, wine, and travel. I also like to volunteer and donate to local charities in the community. I also enjoy watching professional and collegiate sports.
I invite you to reach out to me via email or phone, as well as connect with me on LinkedIn and Facebook.
