Commercial Loan Portfolio Manager, Wake Forest

“The best part of my day is dissecting a lending challenge and finding a solution that is good for the customer and the bank.”


A Chicago native and long-time commercial lender, I moved to the Triangle in 2021 following three decades in banking. Most recently, I was the vice president of commercial lending for First Secure Bank & Trust. Prior to that, I worked in lending at Midland States Bank, Morris Building & Loan (a branch of Harvard Savings Bank), and Marquette Bank.

Outside the Office

You’ll most likely find me spending time with my family, watching sports or weightlifting. I am a fan of the Chicago Blackhawks, the beach and the mountains.

Work hard, play hard.
