After 23 years of practicing wealth management, multiple bull and bear markets, an internet bubble, a financial crisis and everything else in between, I have come to understand certain truths. The stock market can be volatile and it’s best if you prepare ahead of time. The less you pay in taxes and expenses the more of your money you keep. Outside perspective is a very good thing. Having a good financial plan as your frame of reference goes a long way. Based on these truths, my value proposition is elegantly simple yet profoundly effective… I strive to listen to my clients like they are the only person in the world so that I can best understand what is most important to them. I work diligently to control the things that can be controlled in the investment process like taxes, expenses and market underperformance so my clients can keep more of their hard earned wealth. By creating and continuously monitoring a plan for each of my clients I ensure that they feel confident that they are on track to do more of the things that are most important to them. I offer my clients independent, unbiased advice in a language that they understand. My wife, Crystal, and I have a five year old son, Cooper, and a three year old daughter named Rhodes. When I’m not spending time with them you might find me downtown serving at our church, pushing my limits at an F3 workout or having coffee with a friend in the Five Points area. I have been given the privilege of shepherding my family of clients through the ups and down of the markets and of life for that matter. And for that I am thankful.
