Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I am so blessed to be able to make a living by helping others as well as their communities. Each day, I sit down and help people overcome financial concerns and obstacles. I also get to help my community with our fraternal programs and activities. It’s very rewarding to be able to do what I do.

I serve members in…

Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Texas.

I can help you plan for life using a variety of tools, including…

life insurance, annuities, mutual funds and variable annuities.

I enjoy working with…

and learning about every client. Every client is unique, and I enjoy hearing about their lives and goals - both personal and professional. With my guidance, we can work together to make the right decisions to help them meet their personal and financial goals. Whether you are a business owner or just getting started, I can help. I am especially fond of working with families, those who are looking to enhance their retirement and post-retirement, business owners, and military.

I attended…

Norfolk State University with a degree in physics and math. I also attended the UVA where I obtained my masters.

I am very proud of…

my two wonderful children and my lovely wife. They provide me the motivation to go out and help be of service to our members and my community.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

Worked as an applications engineer designing and building industrial laser systems around the world. From there I went on to run a Toyota dealership as well as own a Korean-Sushi fusion restaurant. After this I moved into financial services and have been helping families for four years.

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

I believe in the organization. This organization helps support its members not only during the tough times, but at all of times. This organization stands out because it puts its members first. Every decision is done with what is best for our members.

The best part of my career is…

helping my members, whether that is planning for retirement or protecting their families with life insurance benefits. I love how Modern Woodmen can make a huge impact in all of our lives.

I’m passionate about…

My greatest blessing is…

the love and admiration of my wife and two amazing children.

My personal motto is…

never let a day go by without letting the ones you love know they are loved.
