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.

With over 20 years of industry experience to draw from, I advise clients on the most advantageous ways to finance equipment and vehicles. I deliver flexible, customized solutions structured to meet clients' tax or accounting needs.

My wife and I have been married for over 20 years, and we have two very active boys. We are active members of our local church and I enjoy coaching sports with our community youth athletic department.
