About Me

I am inspired by nonprofit organizations, their impact, their leadership, and their passion. Like me, Apex believes in nonprofits and, together, we work to care for our clients as much as our clients care for the community around them.

My primary practice works with nonprofits at every growth stage which includes formation, application for tax exemption, board governance, and corporate exit plans. I pride myself on listening to my clients, counseling them through difficulties, and being a trustworthy voice in all of my clients’ endeavors.

When not in the office, I serve as a deacon at my church, spending time mentoring young men to better themselves both socially and spiritually. When at home, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Noelle, my daughter, Elizabeth, and my son, Asher.
