Class 2017


I was born and raised in Huntington, WV. In 2000 I graduated from Huntington High School, where I met my wife, Martha. Then I received a B.S. in Accountancy from Miami University in Oxfrord, OH. Immediately after graduation I started my practice with Northwestern Mutual, and have been with Northwestern Mutual ever since. During my career, I have earned my Certified Financial Planner designation as well as the CLU designation.

Currently, I am the Managing Partner for Northwestern Mutual West Virginia. With over 60 financial planners statewide, we work to make sure that the members of our community have a written financial plan that serves as a roadmap for retirement, estate planning, and other general life planning concerns.

Martha and I live in Huntington, WV and we have three children who are ages nine, seven, and six. In 2012, we started a non-profit organization called “The Backpack Project.” Each year we provide monogramed backpacks with gifts for teenage WV foster children. We are very excited about this opportunity to serve and in 2016, with our firm, were able to deliver over 170 backpacks locally with the help of DayMark and the WV DHHR. We are also very involved with our church and love spending the weekends outdoors biking, hiking, skiing, and just being together as a family.
