Financial Advisor, Retirement Planning Specialist


I have been a Financial Advisor for over 38 years. I started my career in 1980 with Penn Corp Financial. This allowed me to expand my financial planning services through Equitable in 1984.


I completed the Retirement Plan Specialist program at Wharton University. I am also a Qualified Plan Specialist for small businesses to setup and manage retirement plans. I have my life and health insurance licenses along with the following NASD Registration Series: 6, 7, 63, 65, and 66.

Personal Information

I am married to my wife Diana. We have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. In my personal time I like to play golf, bowl, and fish. I also enjoy playing guitar and leading the band at the Cowboy Church of Collin County.
