I was raised in McDonough, GA where I lived until I left to attend the University of Georgia.  I received a degree in Consumer Economics and went on to cut my teeth in the investment business with one of the big investment wire houses.  After several years of the investment business I decided that I wanted to be able to address more aspects of my client’s financial world and that is what ultimately led me to begin my financial planning practice with Northwestern Mutual in the summer of 2008.  I married my college sweetheart Christina in July 2004 and we have four children Will (9), Molly Jane (7), Henry (4) and Annie Kate (1).  My family and I are members of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Athens.  Outside of work I spend a lot of time wrangling my kiddos and also try to exercise my privileges as a private pilot as frequently as possible.
