After a 16 year career with Merck, I made the decision to change my profession. While venturing into the unknown is somewhat unnerving, I knew I had to follow my deep rooted desire to make a difference in people’s lives.
When I had the opportunity to join Hyre Personal Wealth Advisors as a Wealth Advisor, I knew right away that this would allow me to pursue my passion for helping others. I truly enjoy what I do and I find fulfillment in being able to develop and implement appropriate plans that help my clients achieve their financial goals. As it turns out, my venture into a new career has been better than I could have imagined.
My wife and I have 3 adult children who all keep us happily engaged in their pursuits, and in March 2013 we became first time grandparents to a beautiful granddaughter. We can hardly contain our excitement. We remain very involved in our local church, and especially enjoy singing in the choir.

Best Piece of Financial Advice Ever Received: “Always pay yourself first”. I remember my parents telling me this from the earliest memories. Usually it was tied to whenever I earned some money or received monetary gifts. It truly is amazing what a regular, systematic savings plan can grow to over a lifetime.
Place You Would Most Like To Visit: Australia and New Zealand. My wife and I have a good friend who has traveled to Australia on business several times. Based on his descriptions of the country I would love to take a month to fully explore these two countries.
