I have been working in the financial industry since 2008. I have been married to my wife Jalauna since September 2004 and we have 3 children - Carter, Seth, and Solomon. Seth and Solomon enjoy playing football. Carter is learning to play percussion with the school band. I love reading with my sons and binge-watching episodes of Dragon Ball Z with them. I enjoy reading or watching programs about astrophysics. I love being a husband and father to my wife and children. I also enjoy international travel, writing financial articles, studying the Bible, volunteering for the Salvation Army, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and spending time outdoors with my family.


My ultimate purpose for spending too much of my energy doing anything is to bring glory to Jesus Christ. I view myself as more of a steward of Dawson Private Wealth and God as the true owner. My staff and I enjoy serving people and providing a quality service to our community. I honestly believe in telling people what they need to hear and not necessarily what they want to hear. I believe that it shouldn’t take several days or weeks to get a call back from your financial advisor. As a result, my office prides itself not solely on helping to ensure clients reach their financial goals but also on the quality of service we deliver to them along the way. We believe that our commitment to excellent service and sound advice is a much needed and powerful value proposition to offer the public.
