VP/Commercial Banker


What I enjoy most about Bell is the people, culture and team attitude. Everyone is willing to help one another and go above and beyond when helping clients. I also appreciate being able to be part of Bell’s exciting growth and to make a difference in the Arizona market! 

I specialize in commercial lending and underwriting in the areas of owner occupied and investor commercial real estate, working capital, equipment finance, and commercial cards. With a focus on acquisition, growth, and overall management of complex commercial banking relationships, my goal is to develop strong relationships with commercial clients in order to understand their businesses, goals, strategies and challenges to form a business plan for long-term financial success. Effectively analyzing commercial credit, cash flow and collateral allows me to be a trusted advocate for my clients.

What I love the most about my role is meeting and talking with clients, seeing their businesses in action, and developing long-term, trustworthy relationships. The exciting component of commercial banking is that I am always learning! Because of my vast banking experience, I’m able to suggest financial services for clients and properly leverage partnerships with other commercial banking and community banking lines of business, such as treasury management, equipment finance, SBA, private banking/wealth management, and home mortgage. 

A Phoenix native, I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University and have more than 13 years of banking experience.

My wife, Ali, and I live in Phoenix with our 2 goldendoodles, Peyton and Scarlett. Outside of work, I enjoy playing golf, watching sports (especially the Arizona State Sun Devils and Arizona Cardinals), traveling to new places and spending time with friends and family.
