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 North Greenville University majoring in Business Administration. My career includes over 17 years in banking . My specific focus has been working with business owners navigating the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse, Erin, and I have been married for 18 years and part of the Greenwood, SC community since 2009. We are the proud parents of two sons, who are very active in baseball and two daughters, who keep us on the go with dance.

I am passionate about spending time with my family and volunteering with youth baseball in my community. Since 2018, I have led a local youth travel baseball organization. As my sons are now older, we are very involved with showcase/travel baseball. This involves a significant amount of travel throughout the southeast on weekends, but allows us to spend a lot of time together as a family.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
