I have been a financial planner and advisor for the last twenty-two years but have been active as an investor for over forty. Under my father's direction, I began investing in the stock market at age 14 using the money I earned from mowing lawns and odd jobs. This was the beginning of my lifelong fascination with investing and economics.
After studying finance and economics at the University of Arkansas and having sold cars to make a living while in school, I began a career in the retail automobile industry. This career served me well, until a change in work schedule and my new marriage made me step back and analyze whether or not I wanted to continue in that particular career. My wife advised me to stop playing around and to finally make my career in the financial world, and that began the journey I find myself on now.
I have been blessed in my career to have worked and learned at some tremendous investment companies. All of them have taught me something, and that education has led to my decision to finally go the route of forming my own RIA. I feel humbled that I am now at the top of the financial services food chain with my own RIA registration, and I am eager to see what the future holds.
Life seems too busy for hobbies-but I do enjoy fishing, reading, harassing my son, and in the fall can usually be found watching college football and cheering on my beloved Arkansas Razorbacks!!
