I remember when as a young boy I first noticed a real estate sign in my neighborhood. I hopped off my bike and grabbed one of the flyers. As I glanced at the price ($300,000), I was perplexed that anyone would have that much money. I turned toward home to ask my mom and dad that question.

Seeing my interest, my dad made an appointment for us to meet with our financial advisor. I listened intently as my parents talked with him about money and about our financial plan for the future. A desire to learn more about finances began and I knew it was going to be a part of my future.

I grew up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, am the youngest of five children and a
graduate from the University of Alabama. My father was a pastor and also a licensed professional counselor. As I was growing up, he taught me the value of strong relationships.

That is why, as a financial advisor, I consider that building a trust relationship with my client is a top priority for me.

I have been working with individuals and families in Birmingham for about 11 years. I met my amazing wife Hannah at a Christian camp, JH Ranch, in 2009 and we married in 2013. Hannah is a graduate from Auburn University Nursing School.
We enjoy fly fishing, hiking, gardening, running, cooking, and traveling. Even though it looks different with children Levi (6), Teddy (4), and Eleanor (1), we still love to go and make memories.

I am thankful to give you a little snippet of my life and I look forward to getting to know you! I feel confident we are able serve clients well at Southwestern Investment Group.
