I joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and the Somers Group in 2015 and based out of our Salt Lake City office. I take pride in providing the families we serve with customized, client-focused financial strategies and investment management backed by a nimble, talented team. Our team members are based in both Utah and New Jersey to be fully accessible and help clients pursue the life they envisioned by leveraging Merrill's vast resources. Prior to joining Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, my previous roles include political consultant, campaign manager, and political finance director in Utah and Washington, DC. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Kenyon College in 2008 and was a four year varsity lacrosse player. Outside of Merrill, I am proud to have served on several committees in the Salt Lake City area and spend one day each weekend in the winter time on the mountain as a part time ski patroller. My wife Shannon and I reside in Kamas, Utah with our twin girls Nora and Abigail.
