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.

I earned my bachelor's degree from Davidson College with a concentration in Political Science and Accounting. My career includes over 30+ 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, Commercial and Industrial space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse, Kathy, and I have been married for 36 years. We are the proud parents of two sons, who are both business professionals. Both are married and we have two very active granddaughters.

I am passionate about spending my time working with the Church and local non-profit organizations, as well as volunteering for youth athletics in our local communities. I have coached youth baseball for over 30 years. Spending time coaching at both recreational and high school leagues in baseball and football. Our family spends time together traveling to the beach and skiing in the mountains.
