My Approach

How will you be brilliant? I can help.

I’m not only in the business of helping you pursue your wealth. I’m also in the business of helping you grow your financial confidence in the future. I’ll help you balance pursuing your dreams for tomorrow with what you want today. We’ll use our exclusive Confident Retirement® approach, which begins with a straightforward conversation about your financial goals.

I’m here to help you live the life you’ve earned. When you have the right advisor, life can be brilliant.


My interests are family, reading, gardening, traveling and serving on the Boards of local non-profits.

An active member of the Rotary Club of Leesburg for over 20 years, I started the Club's annual New Years Day Race (the REHAU RotaryResolution Race) in 1998. To date, the Race has raised over $300,000 for local charities. My wife, Carole, and I have been Co-Directors of the Race for 18 years.

I am the Chairman of Conversations at Oatlands, a lecture series. Each year this group invites prominent speakers to engage in a "conversation" at Oatlands Plantation, a National Trust property near Leesburg.
