About Me:

Growing up in Columbus, I enjoyed figuring out systems that could help me improve academically, athletically and socially. More importantly, I always enjoyed sharing the systems that worked for me to help those I care about. I studied economics in college knowing I would get into finance, but majored in psychology when I found it to be embedded in everything we do. I am fascinated by how we think and why we do the things we do.

My wife Cookie and I have been together since 2006, we have two beautiful children, Mac and Bailey, and a third on the way! We also have an overprotective Westie named Buckley. Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling and staying active. I love playing sports and being part of a team. I played football in college and believe the lessons I learned being part of a team have served me well in all areas of life.
