I founded Visionary Wealth Advisors with Tim Hammett to provide the best possible services and unlimited opportunity for our clients. I see that there is greatness in the lives of every person, and it’s the job of a Visionary to help them see it and become inspired by their own vision for their future.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Eastern Illinois University and have lived in the O’Fallon, Illinois area for 12 years. My wife Julie and I founded Swing Fore Hope, a charity that funds cancer research and provides financial assistance to cancer patients.
