Helping people understand not just how, but why

As the leader of the consulting and training team, I work directly with clients to help them to navigate AdvisorEngine’s platforms. I also execute and evaluate our employee educational programs to ensure everyone is up to speed with our technology. I am the “why guy” when it comes to determining how advisors use our platform.

What brought me here

My path here was a little different as I began as a middle school teacher. I taught music - specifically band – for 15 years. While I loved working with children and teaching music, navigating the school system was a different story. I decided to go back to school to pursue a computer networking degree. After graduation, I attended a job fair and met the leadership from Junxure and decided to join their great team. The rest is history.

How I balance life

Outside of work, I can by found spending time with family and friends. Together we try to get outside as much as possible.

What I want to know most in life

When does it stop being partly cloudy and become partly sunny?

Who inspires a sense of adventure in me

My daughter Madison, who is 15 years old, inspires a sense of adventure in me. She is curious about everything – and adventurous, very adventurous. Madison lives by the words “it’s all about the experience” and makes sure I do the same. You name it, she makes me go out and try it!
