I grew up in the South Coastal Texas town of Victoria where much of my time was spent in athletics, saltwater fishing, hunting, and other outdoor activities. I attended Baylor University and graduated with degrees in Finance and Financial Services & Planning. I started my banking career as a credit analyst trainee in Waco with Lone Star Ag Credit in 2010 where I was involved in all aspects of credit underwriting for core and Capital Markets lending activities. I relocated to Lone Star’s corporate headquarters in Fort Worth in 2017 where I worked in a cross-functional role between credit and accounting/finance for two years in order to earn a CPA license. Upon completion, I transitioned back to credit where I currently manage the Capital Markets and Agribusiness loan portfolios.
Through my journey, I have gained a deep, comprehensive understanding of credit, accounting, and finance that offers value for unique, large, and complex commercial transactions common in the Capital Markets and Agribusiness areas. I am very proud to say I have worked at Lone Star my entire professional career and am passionate about carrying out our mission for our stockholders.
I am beyond blessed with a wife and son. I have been a Certified Public Accountant since 2018, a member of the AICPA, the Fort Worth Chapter of the Texas Society of CPAs, and the Farm Credit Council’s Rural Investment and Innovation Workgroup. I also serve on the board as the treasurer for a local non-profit organization. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, coaching or watching my son’s sporting events, golf, and being outside.
