My Approach

I am passionate about working with my clients and want them to experience financial confidence now and in retirement. I will look at your entire financial picture — cash reserves, debt management, investments, protection and taxes, ask targeted questions and listen closely to your answers. I want you to feel confident that the advice I provide reflects your unique dreams and goals.



Living in Seattle, I keep busy by attending shows at the 5thAvenue Theater and spending every opportunity I can enjoying the sights, sounds and cuisine of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. During the fall you will find me on the shores of Lake Washington cheering on my Washington Huskies. I’ve always been a Seattle sports fan and I am passionate about my local teams.

In the winter I spend my off time on the slopes skiing or in the kitchen testing out a new recipe. In the summer I’m outside playing soccer, grilling up juicy steaks, or doing my best not to lose all my golf balls on one of the many local golf courses.

This is me finishing the 150-mile Obliteride. With help from many, we were able to raise funds for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
