For more than 35 years, I have had the privilege of serving clients within my community. I joined American Bank in 1995 to help continue the growth of this wonderful bank alongside the staff and the board. I consider myself blessed to have had the opportunity to really understand the vison of this privately held bank through our founders: George Hawn and Frank Scanio.

Whether it is Commercial lending, Treasury Management, or Trust and Wealth Management, our team has the expertise to help our clients grow their businesses and find financial solutions that align with their goals. I am always grateful when my clients send me a referral or introduce me to a new business partner. Being their banker is an honor. I often say “Buy Local” it is good for our community and for our clients.

Over the years, I’ve been involved in a number of organizations, on boards and committees. Currently, I’m involved with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, American Heart Association: Circle of Red, Art Museum of South Texas, and the Corpus Christi Yacht Club.

I've been blessed to not only be a part of the American Bank family for nearly thirty years, but to also have had the opportunity to build strong relationships with many successful and talented business owners. We are fortunate that our local economy is extremely diverse. I've had the privilege of supporting businesses in virtually every industry in our area, including restaurants, professional engineering firms, machine shops, manufacturing facilities, oil field service companies, legal and medical professional practices, and real estate development. It has been a tremendous honor to learn from so many talented clients, and I take pride in having played a part in helping them grow their businesses and seeing the positive impact those businesses have had on our community.

In my tenure, we have grown from a small community bank serving the Coastal Bend to being one of the most successful independent banks in Texas. We've accomplished this by following a simple model of taking the time to understand our clients’ needs and working diligently to achieve them. If you are looking for a community banker who will be genuinely interested in your success, I would welcome the opportunity to meet you.

Outside of work, I've volunteered with a variety of non-profit organizations over the years including board service for the Volunteer Center and the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce.

I joined American Bank in 2017, shortly after relocating to the Coastal Bend from my hometown of Houston. Upon being introduced to the American Bank team, I was drawn to the organization based on its family culture, authentic core values, and unique level of sophistication for a bank of its size. I realized quickly that American Bank was a well-respected institution in the community with deep relationships and a long history of delivering high quality service and products to its clients.

My career in banking and finance spans more than 20 years. During this time, I specialized in investment and corporate banking, where my responsibilities were focused on capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate finance in the energy sector. I've also worked in public accounting, where I served primarily middle market to large clients, both public and private. At American Bank, I enjoy serving a broad and diverse client base, bringing expertise and service to clients ranging from commercial, industrial and healthcare, to family offices and high-net-worth individuals.

Over the past several years, American Bank has achieved significant growth in Corpus Christi and the greater Coastal Bend region, while also expanding into other key Texas markets. This growth has allowed us to better serve our existing clients, and expand the American Bank brand and its unique relationship-focused service model. All of this is a product of American Bank’s commitment to being a leading Texas regional bank.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and pursuing various outdoor activities, my favorite being saltwater fly fishing.
