After graduating from Appalachian State University with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Computer Information Systems, I joined the family at Financial Independence Group in Cornelius, North Carolina. I started as the Head Recruiter for the Securities Division of Financial Independence Group. During that time I was in charge of bringing new registered representatives to the broker dealer of Financial Independence Group. After two successful years, I moved into the Annuity Division at Financial Independence Group as one of their Marketing Consultants. Since that move, I have built a strong book of Advisors, and help them on a daily basis with everything from complicated case design and product selection to overall business planning and augmentation.


I currently reside in the Lake Norman Area of North Carolina with my wife, Candace, and our three beautiful children, Connor, Ella, and Spencer. When not assisting my advisors with their needs, I can be found coaching soccer for North Mecklenburg Soccer Club. I have coached at North Mecklenburg Soccer Club for over 8 years now, have won numerous state and regional tournaments with the teams I have coached, and have my National Coaching Diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
